    With or without the cement barrier and the white sign thing you could probably sell the first one as a post card or for travel brochure. Beautiful landscape.

    My problem with pet photos is I take a lot of them but feel they aren't neutral enough to really get someone to be interested. I take a lot of my dog(my avatar) and unless she's doing something funny to a lot of people its just a dog photo. Both of these shots look nicely taken. I do like the Eyes of the cat though. What camera?

    In the landscape I'd crop out that white thing on the right and remove the flurorescent orange stake, but other than that it's about as good as it gets. Beautiful job!

    Cat photo, meh, I'm not feelin' it.

    Love the first one and the cat's eyes.

    Some cropping on the first one (as mentioned before) to get rid of the cement barrier and the white post will make it absolutely beautiful.

    With the landscape shot you might want to consider getting out of your car or at least pulling a little closer to the barriers on the side of the road and mabye trying to keep the street signs out as well. As far as the cat goes yep, it's a snapshot of a cat.

    I was out of my car, unfortunately I couldn't get any closer, the place I took the pictures is where the bank is falling away into the river, I could hear it falling as I was taking it... scary stuff!

    You couldn't stand next to the barrier?

    Well I guess I could ave but I was afraid to :p THe pavement was cracked and slanting down ward so I wasn't too sure if it was safe or not. We have beautiful mountains here, so I am waiting for another good day to take some more shots. I am also waiting on my Telephoto lens.

    Take another shot closer to the barrier. I don't think you'd accomplish the same as what you've already accomplished with a telephoto lens. This was a great shot!

    By all means try it with a telephoto but let's see how it looks reshot with the lens you used already.
