    I'm by far from an expert, so take these comments with a grain of salt. :D

    #1 - I love the color of the sky, but I find the foreground dark and distracting.
    #2 - I think the duck is to out of focus. Reminds me of one of those loc-ness monster pictures. ;)
    #3 - My favourate out of the lot. I personally like the way this one was done.

    I like #1 the best (and I do like it alot). I agree that the duck should have been in better focus, otherwise it would be excellent. #3 doesn't really speak to me.

    I'm impressed that you can wake up for sunrise shots :)

    I am really bummed that the duck was out of focus, otherwise this would have been an awesome photo. The out of focus duck totally ruins that one for me. :(

    The last one has good exposure and color, but is a little boring for me. I have seen way to many photos of just sky and clouds. But technically speaking, it is a good photo.

    #1 - too much foreground.
    #2 - out of focus duck works for me.
    #3 - interesting cloud study.

    thanks for all of your honesty!!

    I'll try a little bit of cropping on number one to see if I can fix it a little.
    I was really bummed about the out of focus duck too... it looked just right from where I was, and in the full picture, it doesn't look quite so oof. but in a way it kind of works for me, personally... but I'm biased :)

    How is this?

    and this is the full version of the duck photo...

    You would almost think we were related, having the same taste and all. :D

    I like that better. When I first saw it, I thought it should have been a landscape photo, and you changed it, so now I'm happy. :sexywink:

    #1 much better

    #2 I like the full version better than the cropped one.
