I took the first of these early in the morning shortly after sunrise before the dawn mist had burned off. This was originally taken in landscape mode, showing the entire dam, but a crop to vertical made it much more interesting.

The second was taken at our local botanical garden where a stream flowed down a hill into a koi pond.

Nice.

Both of these look great in vertical format.

Both shots are great. My only complaint is that I can't see all of the first shot without scrolling up and down. Been thinking of turning my screen 90 degrees and adjusting the video driver to compensate. It would certainly make it easier to view these vertical shots!

I like both of these. It almost looks like you were standing in the koi pond for the second one. You weren't, were you? :-)

Cal, if you'reusing Internet Explorer, are you using the "F11 Full Screen" key to toggle a bigger picture on&off? Using it, trojansoc's 873-pixel shot above very nearly fits my 1024x768 display, and 800 fits exactly. Also I sometimes temporarily switch off some of the horizontal toolbars, e.g., the Menu.

Also, in IE7, there's a zoom button at the bottom RH corner & you can choose "75%" temporarily. But it'd be better if we restricted ourselves to 800-pixel maxheight, as you recommend.

Forgot to say that the dam shot is a wonderfully composed capture ofan awesomescene.

I don't use IE unless I have to. It's too d--- slow! I use Netscape 7.2. I just checked and Netscape has a F11 full screen view. I'll try it out. Thanks for the tip.

Both are nice picture,But #1 hold my attention. Why..? the image is divided into two part by the mist or water spray, one is actual dam image another is reflection of it,that makes the whole image outstanding.

Alright Trojansac ,I am going to copy this concept someday, by any chance did you have copyright over it??? LOL

#1 is A-OK! I would have composed that shot exactly the same way...

Calr - have you check out Firefox?
