    Alright....so another failed attempt. It would be nice to know if it failed because of my crappy compositional skills or my crappy post processing skills.

    I didn't see it until now, but...

    Looks a little washed out and perhaps a tad soft to me... maybe a smaller aperture would have helped on this one.

    I love how clear the water is!

    I was at f/14 so I'm not sure why it's soft. I guess this might be a clue that I need to start using the 2 second timer for these types of shots.

    It was a really overcast day which I thought would be okay for this type of scene. What type of lighting should I be looking for on these types of shots?

    The right hand side is too dark, maybe dodge it ?

    Okay...went back and looked....bland colors are because of my stupid Post processing skills. On landscapes, my post work seems to hurt the image a lot more than it helps. Here's a "better" version (I think).

    Looks more alive, i like it. Could use a little sharpening and a pygmy with a sword in the bushes, other than that it looks much better.

    Lol @ pygmy. Thanks. I need to force myself to have more self control with editing. Less is more, less is more.

    The 2nd photo is much nicer... when i saw the first image i immediately thought needs some pp, mainly because the greens looked red/brown/yellow
