Very nicely capture. It just looks awesome. I like 1 the best. You are really liking shooting around the lake, I see.

Hards80,

Thought it was impossible to extract something new from this kind of motive, but you've done it. Great

Torgny

Btw I imported the second to Ps - You've got some great detail in the lower left corner as well as some green in the leaves at the bottom

Torgny,

thank you very much for the kind words

yea, this i actually processed from RAW, so I actually have alot more detail to work with, but went for the silhouette look on this one. i tried both ways, but i preferred it as is. but as with all things, tastes vary.

I like #1 best. The additional blue tones in the upper atmosphere in #2 draw my eye away, along with the small sapling in the foreground. Maybe a tighter crop on #2.

Either way, nice work. That sky is breathtaking.

thank you billy.

#1 is also my favorite.

#2 i agree, the blue distracts me and so does the sapling, but any other crops felt awkward.

I don't like either........... as I didn't take them LOL. I like the first best, even though the 2nd works really well too, the balance and composition of the first as well as the colours just work great together.
