    Just came back from a camping trip in Sequoia National Forrest, CA with a bunch of friends. Was great getting out of the city for a bit and taking some pictures in nature.

    #1 - nominated.

    1 is just incredible, everything else seems mediocre.

    #1 is dramatic, but I find myself spending more time with your second offering - an engaging silhouette!

    great job!

    Thanks a lot for all the comments.

    I'm glad you like them.

    Sw1chFX: Thanks a lot. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve the other ones; especially number 3? Also thank you for the nomination; I feel very honored.

    Emily91183, Cero21: Thanks for your comments. Number one is an HDR image composed out of 3 images and put together in Photomatix. After that I did some level tweaking and other small stuff in Photoshop.

    JYoung: wow, I don't know about that, but thanks a lot. Yes camping was a blast. Can't wait to go again.

    Ally Cat images: Thanks, I think I agree with you. I kinda like the 2nd one better myself.

    Please let me know how I could have made number 3 better, since it doesn't seem to work that well. I agree with that, but can't tell how to fix it.

    Thanks again to everybody.

    #1 is fantastic, I was just wondering how you achived a hdr with water in the foreground?... how did you not get blurs when combining the images in photomatix? everytime i try a hdr of scenes with water in them it always looks odd...

    and I think #3 is a great photo, I think what lets it down is because the background looks over exposed... have you tried using the mask tool in ps, or lasooing around it and feathering the selection and level/curving it a little?
