Default Dancing in the late afternoon light

I noticed this set of trees with the late afternoon rays and couldn't help but try and do the subject some justice..

I love trying to capture landscapes like this too, but I have to make myself not try and pull shadows up too much as there really are areas of darkness in a subject like this..

And a few other images you probably haven't seen as I just decided to process them, first from the Washington Memorial Chapel, with the 7-14mm f4 Panasonic..

A peaceful landscape in the morning fog at Gettysburg..

Along the Confederate lines on Seminary Ridge..

General James Longstreet and his assisting robin..

The Louisiana Memorial as seen from behind and looking towards the Union lines on Cemetery Ridge, and you won't believe this character is a Patron Saint. The Catholics really do have all their bases covered, Meet Saint Barbara, the patron saint of artillerymen.

I really like the first shot, the trees seem to be dancing in the afternoon light to my eye which I believe means you captured what you wished to show which is wonderful. I also like the fence in number four, the composition leads the eye into the image.

And as far as the patron saint of artillery, that's a new one on me, as you say they have their bases covered. I have heard that people will bury a figurine of St. Joseph to help sell their homes as he is the patron saint of real estate
