    Here's the set:

    1. Part of the campground. I don't think this picture is especially good, but I think the trees in the background are kind of dull. I face this problem all the time when shooting in forests....can anybody help me here?

    #2: Middle Cullen Lake, near sunset. I ran into it while going the wrong way on a bike ride. It's one of hundreds, if not thousands of lakes in the area.

    #3: More Middle Cullen lake.

    #4: The swampy part of the lake.

    #5: See #4

    #6 - Typical road. Where I ended my bike ride and turned around:

    #7: Just a ring of trees.

    4.I like this one also. The reflections in the water are great :D

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    It looks like the leaves are a bit overexposed. The camera doesn't have the dynamic range to record everything in a scene like that. It looks like you exposed for the areas in shadow so everything in direct sunlight is overexposed.
    If you expose for the areas in sunlight the areas in shadow will be too dark. You have to decide which part is more inportant.
    Im not sure what kind of camera you are using but if you can get a polarizing filter for it you will see a very dramatic difference. The filter will block all of the glare from the leaves making them alot less bright resulting in a nice rich green color.

    Come on, people! Tell me more!

    I'm especially worried about the composition. Please give me tips so I can improve. Don't be afraid to say the pictures are poorly done or anything.
