With these photos I know the post-processing is a bit off etc. I am looking for CC more in the area of, composition and other areas that are from a behind-the-camera perspective of a photographer's worth, besides the fact that Photobucket messes with the colors already there I think, or else Photoshop's just color-calibrated wrong (oy...) Hey, it looks better on my screen :S Point is these were shot on a D80 and 18-135 kit lens and you guys know the D80 outputs better than that. The first photo is from Rosh Hanikra, on the Lebanon border: The second one is from Jaffa (old Tel Aviv). Here I was trying to create an effect of having the sun where the (for lack of a better word) head of the palm tree is for an interesting effect (yes the highlights are blown, etc... not the CC I'm looking for here). Feel free to mess around with these as you like for CC purposes.
