    hard to believe that's a city of over 1 million population.

    The water has that great glass look to it.

    #3 with the buildings just seems off balance to me. To much sky

    I like 1 the best.

    2 is a difficult picture being that the chair is in the shade and the background is in the sun. I would have liked to have seen you either closer or further from that chair - it made my eyes get lost in the picture.

    Ya, it's pretty amazing how wild Minneapolis can get.

    The funny thing about 2 is that I wasn't all that far from it, just the effect of the wide angle lens.

    Like that much better of the two.

    It balances it for the Rule of Third's better.

    Too bad the golfers are in the way....:lol:

    I live in Rural MN, so golf courses to me are a perfectly good waste of a rifle range.....;)

    Ya...stupid golfers. Although the course is nice for views such as this. There must be a way to edit that out in photoshop, but I'm such a photoshop noob. Is the new content aware fill out in photoshop yet? That looks easy enough for a noob like me.

    The natural way would have been to let them play through THEN take the picture....

    Otherwise, try the clone brush. I have had some decent luck removing signs and other things from images with good luck.

    This is the same image in both pictures. The chimney was cloned out of the second image. Just zoom in and work slowly at it.
