    I took quite a lot of pics today in the mountains. I chose these seven for C&C. Let me know what you think of them. Thanks a lot.

    I did notice that #6 is soft around the edges. I was using my Minolta Maxxum 100-300mm at maximum zoom.

    Everything is centered for the most part. They all look pretty much properly exposed and the colors are great.

    I cropped some of them and adjusted the contrast and color saturation a little bit on a few. I really didn't make any drastic adjustments on any of them though.

    Other than centrally composed they all look good.

    The dam in pic #3 is Anderson Ranch dam. The river below is the South Fork of the Boise River. I took all of my pics today along the river. This area is about 70 miles NE of Boise.

    I am always looking to improve, and I noticed that a couple of people mentioned that they were centrally composed.
    Is this a bad thing to do? If so, what could I have done differently?

    Just as an example, say pic #5, should I maybe have taken the pic with the deer near the corner of the pic? Please explain.


    This is a quick crop job just to show an example of what I think you guys were getting at.
