    Not much to do at work this morning so I took off about 9 and hit the hills... Had an idea, and came back with a ton of shots, but these are the ones my wife likes.... She sz she wants one printed for the den.. - but I had to guess which one she likes.. I asked, "Is this one of those .. dz this make my butt look big traps" ?? She sz, just pick one... Thought I'd look at them for a while, and throw them out to you ... Ideas?

    thanks,

    R

    I think #3. It's circular, has good rhythm, balance plus variety, contrast and texture. Very pleasant to look at. Tom Beard

    I like almost all of them. Seems like in #1, youget the effect of the sunlight on the tree's bark, turning it into an oil-painting impression.

    It's a toss up between 2 and 3 for me.

    Nice shots! Like the colors in #3 the most.

    Is it just me, or is #4 nowhere even close to being in focus?

    Looks like he grabbed the clarity bar and pulled it all the way down. It was most likely in good focus. 2 and 3 are my favorites.

    #3 is your best composition.. It shows that the landscape is the subject with the tree as an interesting interlude..... nicely done

    2 is best focused/exposed, but the tree is chopped off and the background is minimal, so it leaves what the subject is up in the air.....

    1. for some reason looks a little like a nucular bomb went off and you snapped the shot. it has an intresting look.
    I lke the comp of #2
    ROT used well and color as it seems a little odd but some reason looks apealing.
    I would like to see 2 or 3 with the tree attached to the ground. maybe some crazy roots or a little somthing to say life.
    I like the pics tho!
    I didnt like #4 at all but you know, i have looked at it more and more and its growing on me. I would maybe try it again with a different sky.
    I AM just a rookie and am learning myself so...
