    The sloping horizons in the first two a really distracting. With levelled horizons, the first (in particular) would be fascinating, what with the swan adding some point of interest to the reflection.

    Not sure whether Photo 2 needs as much sky... ? But it, too, needs a straightened horizon.

    Is the dusk photo taken handheld? I lacks total sharpness...

    And the last doesn't say much to me, other than that the streetlight is a distraction for sure. Couldn't you have brought A LADDER? ;) ;) ;)

    I enjoy all of the colors in the trees. I just moved to a place where I can enjoy that firsthand.

    I look forward to seeing your snow shots.

    I like the first one except for the color of the sky.

    So I just had my roll of Kodak 400 that I took along side of the shots above. Here's what I got:

    I love all of them... I really love the first one... I see the swan,poles and trees but it's the pop of orange color on that tree in the left that gets my attention. Great shots.

    Me too. I had my d300 set to vivid +1 on saturation. I think that's why the colors are so bright in the digital version.

    I think the first film shot is the best. I think the first two shots posted would benefit from the use of a polarizing filter

    The first has great potential, but it needs minor adjustments. I would suggest the use of a CPL to make the skies nicer, a tighter crop so theres not so much sky in the picture, and a straightening of the horizon.

    prefer the film shots, they have some nice, warm texture the digital ones don't get even close to.
    the film swan photo is beautiful, probably would have been even better with a little less aperture.
