Hmmm - I'm just getting the "maintenance in progress" sign...

Hmmm is right....what does this mean???

As Desi Arnaz would have said, "Can you splain this to me?"

OK, now it's working....Thx.

Can't figure that one out. I can see the pictures OK here.

If I'm understanding the definations correctly, the high key here has too many shadows. Not just a lighter picture but should be washed out but still interesting.

Yes, basically the two shots are opposites.

On the low key I focused on the sky and the colors came out but the land is dark.

On the high key I focused on the mountains in the background so the land exposure is better but the sky is washed out.

Not a very extreme example but the only one I had that you guys have not seen before. Thanks for taking a look.

Zoomn, these are excellent photographs - the low and high key are very slight but very nice. I can see what you've done. The colors are gorgeous!

Those are beautiful shots. The first one looks like a polarizer was used to accentuate the sky and clouds.

Yes a polarizer was used on both of them.
