oh the third picture is just WOW !

Unfortunately it's a bit "ruined" by the lady on the left, but other than that its pure gold.

EDIT: You got more pictures up and gotta say that the third, once again, in this post is a real winner between the three.

This would've been a golden opportunity for HDR, but even without HDR these scenes are stunning !

funny you say that since I thought she kind of added an interesting element to the frame, but there is always content aware filter in cs5 for that

as far as the 2nd set goes, the last one of those was a bit PPed, prominently with the adjustment brush for exposure on the ground part. it was way underexposed because the frame got metered on the sky, so i thought this would be my chance to see if i can make the shot semi-usable

thx for comments though. much appreciated

Hehe, it's just my opinion since it's a landscape picture and because the scene was such a beauty I don't want any people interfering, haha...

Philosophically I don't see much difference between a semi-silhouette of a human on the shore and a semi-silhouette of a duck on the water. To use the classifications on this forum the presence of the forms do not make these photos into people or wildlife photos respectively. Nor, for that matter, does the presence of the building make the photo an architectural photo.

Comparing the original photo and the two were the human form was cloned out the edited versions seem unbalanced compositionally. That is the human form on the left balances the building form on the right. If I were doing any editing I would darken the photo to render both the person and the building more nearly silhouettes as below although quite frankly nothing in the original photo bothers me at all. I rather like the whole set.
