I decided to make a thread like mar1u5 to post all my photos. I have considered the critiques from my first thread and I think they have improved my editing to a degree. Here are a few photos to start off. First, a couple more shots from Half Moon Bay, the same location as the previous one: 1. I think the hills in the background came out blue because they were too far in the background and blended in with the sky, and got bluer when I dodged the image. I'm not sure if there's anything that can or should be done about it. 2. Also, a white rose outside my house. I thought it was kind of boring by itself, so I made a couple of artistic renditions: 3a. 3b. 3c. Thanks to any C&C'ers, I will continue to update this thread with more unless I am asked to stop.
