I've been somewhat intimidated to post any of my shots here after seeing other people's way awesome, professional qualitywork. I guess I'll put my best foot forward and try to make a good first impression here... This is definitly one of my favorite shots. It was taken around Norwood, La on a camping trip I took in December.

Thanks for the welcome and the compliment, although, I would hardly call it "work". I might call it a snap shot. I'm not sure if they make a word that comes before novice. I've been at it since October. Hopefully I'll be able to learn a lot from the folks over here.

Welcome Zack. Nice first post. Watch out for those dark corners in your photo - that's vignetting. You can crop that out of your photos in Photoshop or Irfanview or some other image processing package.

Cheers,
Ollie

Very nice image with tasteful composition anda matchingsilhouette effectZackOllie's advice aboutcropping out the vignettingactually appliesto your image.Alternatively you can also clone out these undesired parts in Photoshop. As I intended todo a quick edit concerning this issue I also darkened the skyand boosted the red about the horizon slightly by using the Level tool at PS.so asto increase the dramatic themealready presentin your image. Hope it's worked for you

Thanks for the tips. The image I posted had no editing done to it. I'm waiting for the computer I ordered back in December to come in before I start exploring PS elements 5. It's starting to get a little frustrating. :angry:
I've got quite a cache of images waiting to be worked on.
