A quiet evening by a small lake.

Very cinematic. The colors are not overly saturated and the contrast is just right. It comes out really nice on my monitor. A pleasure to look at.

The calm before the storm. Very nicely done it is great to see the texture on the boat and agreeing with vv it dosent seem overly saturated which is nice. I was just wondering, if anything if cropping a little out of the sky so as to raise the horizon line but having said that the sky has great drama.

Good observation flasha, but I always compose my image in the camera. I very seldom crop afterwards unless of course I intended to change the ratio of height to width for doing a panorama look. I prefer to see the comparison of the calm peaceful lake set under those nasty clouds. All weekend it was sunny while we drove, but the moment we stopped to take pictures the rain would just pour. And it would clear up as we got back in the car. And it rained all night. Go figure.

Nice composition... a nice tranquil feel....
Being the curious type (and not a huge fan of HDR) I couldn't resist a "later in the evening" conversion....

Very nicely done, Bynx.

I'm also glad you reminded all of us just how important it is to compose and frame the image in-camera. It's those key steps that a lot of us tend to forget.
Or, think that a poorly framed image can easily be corrected in post processing.
