    I spend a very cold afternoon down by the lake here in Toronto and got some nice shots. What do you think?

    I like these pictures. I think I like #1 the best. I like the mood it conveys - serious, surreal, isolation. It really must've been a cold day!

    I like number 4. But in general all of them are good

    Very nice. I like 2 and 3 best - they have a surreal quality to it, and I love surreal photography.

    Thanks for the feedback. I tend to lean toward the surreal and moody in my photos. Glad the word surreal came up more than once.

    I love #1. I think that's the real winner here.
    But, I think it could be cropped to a landscape orientation, a lose a big bit of the sky, and a little bit of the forground, that's what I see in my mind. Use your browser to crop it just above the tree, and equally below the lowest rock. That still keeps plenty of interesting sky detail.

    Here's another one of the same spot where I pretty much did what you suggested. I didn't undertake the same post processing as the 1st one, obviously.

    Thanks. To be honest, every one of these photos and those on my blog are shot with a four year old, $149.00 point & shoot camera. No bad ass lens. No filters. Just point, and shoot, then post-process. :)

    Next year I'm getting a Nikon D90. Then the fun begins.

    Goes to prove that, as the say, it's the "fool" not the "tool". Even more kudos for making do with a minimalistic set up. #2 by the way seems to have the tonality of the recent post-apocalyptic movie "The Road" - and I loved the cinematography in that movie.

    BTW, I am trying my newbie hand at some surreal photos - several of them are in my photoblog.

    Oooh! I love #1(B). Tighter than I was thinking, but I LOVE it.

    Good job with these. :thumbup:
