    Well I finally have all my pictures, the better ones anyway, ready to be posted. All of these were taken in the Bahamas last week. I will load the full quality versions on my dA Account (Click my sig) tomorrow and will have a little write up about each one. But if you would like to know anything about the sites before then just ask. Keep in mind there are all at 6 quality, the big iguana one being a 2.

    **Also this was the first time I got to use my 17-40mm... :mrgreen:

    It might be easier for some of you just to look through the photobucket gallery... http://photobucket.com/albums/v391/Outkastplaya6769/Bahamas/

    WOW Great shots. Did you PS the first three or how comes the reddish sky?

    Just some brightness/contrast. And maybe a little playing with curves. But I don't really see the red in the sky. Only thing I didn't like in alot from the Island is the small little sections of Island in the background always came across a real redish brown.
    This is a good example...

    I love the 17th picture and this lovely dreamy soft look :)
    did you used some kind of "half-filter"? most pictures seem to have a slight magenta dominant in the top. Was that intentional?

    alot of the really seem to have a pink tinge to me, like white balance is a little off. Really cool shots though!!

    It is a Gaussian blur of about 1.1. I just blended it. I'm not sure why the coloring seems to have gone a little pinkish.
    Which one would you say is the "Pinkis" I'll load it up on dA at full quality.

    Yah the first one feels very pink to me, especially in the sky. On one hand, I'm on a laptop, but on the other, it actually does a pretty decent job of reproducing whites.....

    Do you know what could have caused it? For most of these I used Fujifilm 200 and a 17-40mm lens with lens hood.
