    Went walking today and found this one really cool spot. I had to make my way thru a lot of brush to see this interesting site. Thought it looked really cool so I took these.

    Let me know what you think please. :thumbup:

    I think I might want to stock up on bottled water in 1-gallon jugs...it looks like the end is near, and it will be dry when it gets here!

    I like the texture in the second shot. Let's hope the end isn't *to* near haha.

    Another vote for #2 - I might crop a little off the top to remove some of the smooth area and then darken the upper left in the cropped image. #3 is good also - a better version of #1 - can't think of anything I would have done differently.

    Not sure if I made it better or worse.

    hmm ya i dunno i kinda like it then when i look at it more i don't...i'm stuck.

    i like how the overall exposure is a tab brighter...its looks a little too dreamy though. wavy or sumething...

    I forgot LOL.. I changed the contrast for sure. But by increasing the contrast I got a lot of noise. So I denoise it to smoothen it out. Thats why it is a little dreamy.

    #1 needs the horizon leveled, I love #2 like everyone else, and with #3... if you were going for an "end of the world" kind of feel, you might even try adding some "gloom" by darkening it a little (maybe just move the black point in Levels to the right a little), and maybe boost the saturation. I don't have time to play with it right now but maybe I'll take a shot later tonight. :)
