These are some very tall poplars (?) I shot the other day. Again with a polarizer. The sun was almost down, and made for some nice contrast of trees on sky. Cheers........thekman.

Love the light on those trees!! I never gave a second thought to light before I became interested in photogarphy, it is pretty cool how things change with the light.

Thanks Bob. I too, never really noticed light either before taking up photography. I seem to look at most things differently now. I thought about boosting the saturation and increasing contrast in these 2, but opted not to. What do you think? Would it help these 2? Cheers.......thekman.

I think the contrast and saturation look good, I do like the second photo of the set best, I think it is a little brighter. Just my opinion, I've only been at this for a couple years, other than trying to make a few encouraging remarks, I really don't feel qualified to give critiques on any ones work.

nice work on these. the yellow makes a nice contrast with the blue sky. i wouldn't mess with saturation or contrast - they're good as they are, and upping the levels might make them look overdone.

by the way, i think those are probably aspens, not poplars... poplars have branches rising from the trunk almost from the ground up, and the branches are almost vertical.

Thanks for the heads up on the type of tree Squirl. My knowledge of the deciduous trees isn't very good, unless it's a maple.........thekman.
