    These three pics I found while going through some folders at some untouched pics I had taken.
    I was not too happy with these and just left them to sit, so tonight, I was bored and decided resize and post them.

    I always loved how white this swan was when I found him, but I sure wish I got the water in focus on it. I was thinking of cloning out the water all together.

    Another from the baby at the cemetery series. I felt I had the subject way to far in the corner.

    All three are great!
    The sky in #1 is great, but it's the dead wood that makes it for me! Without that, it's just another sunset.

    The last one is my fav! Because of the pose of the statue, I think the compo is perfect. It's like she's being drug away and that cross is her last hope, the last thing to hold on to.

    Shot #1 is great. I like the dead wood with the ominous clouds hovering behind. Very dramatic.

    Silly man. ;) Well, I can't say I don't understand your self-criticism, cause we're ALL our own worst critics. At least you decided to post them for us! :hug::

    Now, I'm trying to figure out what I wouldn't have liked about them if they'd been mine.....and I'm struggling.

    For #2, don't sweat the softness of the water - everything else is briar sharp and it's an enhancement, not a distraction, see? The tiny beads on the head and the coy position of the eye just make this shot near brilliant. :thumbup: One of the best I've seen from you! :)

    Okay, with #3.....maybe a step to the right and you'd have liked it better....? But again.....there's little not to like about this shot. ;) You and the LB are getting along beautifully.

    And the first is just lovely....I agree with Woodsac, the branches in the foreground add shape and drama to this image. It's beautiful!

    No more Carl-bashing, now..... :whip:

    These three are all spectacular Chilley! The driftwood in #1 is just so coooool and that swan is majestic and those water droplets are wonderful! I absolutely love the composition in the last one and the tones are fabulous.......I am particularly fond of that one! So glad you decided to post these! Wonderful job Chilley!!!! : )
