    These were the first images I've ever shot in RAW format. The Pentax software doesn't give as big of a range of saturation & contrast adjustments as I would have hoped, so I saved the files as 16 bit TIFFs and adjusted the contrast, saturation, and gamma in Irfanview.

    #1 - Which do you like better, horizontal or vertical?

    #2

    #3 - I couldn't decide if this one is worth anything or just *yawn*. What is your honest opinion?

    the first one. It provides the best balance in my opinion.

    i kinda like nr 2 there, nr 3 is a bit "yawn" yes....
    the subject and composition is boring to be honest, maby try shot from several different angles... then pick the best.

    I agree with the #1 thing but I like #2 really well also. We got snow last night I am going to brave the snow today.

    I think the first one is the best of the 3. #2 needs better foreground and the branches at the top left are too close.

    The first is better because it seems to have better contrast than the second one. The compostion in either one works well. I think the third one needs a much tighter view to show the contrast between the bark & the snow. It's a bit busy as it is now.
