    I love the second and third from the start because they are such straightforward pictures. The first one is a little more in-depth and requires more thought to finally enjoy is for the beautiful picture it is. So, I like the first one the best.

    Thanks- The colors around the place were awesome.

    Thanks Mike.

    Thank you.

    The first is a little bold, even for me. I've been trying different ways of dealing with the high winds- Either pull back or get in real close and try to use it. I wanted to see if I could get a bokeh, of sorts, going in the front of the shot where the wind was relentless.

    Some notes on the settings, if anyone's into it;

    f4.5
    1/750s
    70mm

    which is just about opposite of the way I normally try to shoot. There was a problem with vignetting on the ends (resulting in a square crop), which I usually don't have, so I'm wondering if it was caused by the f4.5???

    All are great as usual. #2 is my favorite.

    Didja know >>> "Steely Dan", has another meaning as well?

    I agree with most here... #2 is fantastic. Love the way the road winds through the poppy fields. Great shot. #3, too.

    #1 doesn't do it for me.

    Cool- Thanks.

    Rubber Soul?- I swear, I had a dream that there was a river named the "Steely Dan." I mean, where else can I use that, besides in a tagline?

    Wow, #3 is my favorite photo I've seen on the forums in a while. Everything about it is perfect...the exposure, the color, and the composition, but the composition is what really makes this shot...I love the placement of that fence post on the left!!:thumbup::thumbup:
