It's a good photo technically, but it truly lacks interest. It's not a loss for two very good reasons: (1) there's the possibility of its rescuing another photo someday as we've been talking about; and (2) you probably learned something from the effort you put into taking this string of photos.

For a while, ask yourself this question when you're aiming your camera: "Why am I taking this picture?" Your answer to the question might make you recompose, or decide you're really onto something, or it might make you just plain give up and go elsewhere. What would you have answered had you asked yourself this question prior to taking these shots? (Mind you, the answer doesn't always have to be something as important as "the human condition." )

So, you see? You had a specific reason for taking the shot, and you accomplished precisely what you set out to do. You did just fine.

I like the first phot the best. It is interesting that it looks more like a long exposure under moonlight rather than sunlight. The other comments are all good ones.

Did you intentionally underexpose the shots and/or adjust the white balance to get the dim--slightly bluish appearance. Whatever you did, I like it. Kudos.

well...i exposed so that the sun wasn't too bright and overwhelming...and so that you could still see details and the color shade change.....

i think i had the WB on auto....and this is wat it looked like in "real life"....so maybe my screen is different from yours.....or something....lol

thanks barbara....i'll have to remember to ask that question....lol
