An almost ethereal-look about this one...rather nice.I would think about cropping a bit of the foreground(to just below the grass)

I like that one: by far the best of the trio you've just posted. There seems to be a lot of noise in the sky though?

John.

Terry that is beautiful but the blue sky is grainy. Any reason for this?

The original isn't grainy.

When I reduced it to under 200k for this forum, the graininess stands out.

However, I did notice that the ISO was set to 400 for this shot (probably as a result of overriding the ISO the previous evening, and forgetting to reset it or whatever).

I've noticed that on the Canon S80, the max ISO of 400 is somewhat grainy.

The S80's ISO400, in terms of graininess, is probably equivalent to ISO800 or ISO1600 on my 20D.

Obviously the sensor in the S80 isn't up to the professional standard of the 20D.

I applied some of the changes suggested by Shaggydoo, as well as some noise reduction and sharpening. I'd really like to see the original, though.

Much better crop and the noise reduction helps.

I will post the photo to a website a little later and put the link to it (using your crop Toshi)

I like the composition of the photo. Seems to speak of solitude.

BUT..... gosh I hate cold weather.(even though the effects of it can make for some beautiful photos)
