    I wasn't expecting much when I clicked on this thread, but these are all technically quite impressive.

    I'm not sure how much of this clarity and detail you're coaxing out in the postwork, but it looks beautiful. I especially love the yellow, um, central stem thingy of the flower. The detail in the texture and the light falloff is very pleasing.

    And the frozen chaos of the waves in the third one is just striking. I would have guessed that you shot it at a higher shutter speed than 1/80th. Why the heck can't Lethbridge ever look that photogenic?

    #3 looks a tad too PSed, but that is just me

    #1 could use some longer dof, but the subject is neat
    #2 is good
    I usually hate the sky/water/clouds thing, because its so overdone, but you did it really well. How much processing did you do on #3?

    #3 looks more like a painting than a photo but is quite impressive. I like the water to look like water not plastic like so many post with slow shutter speeds.
