Wellcome to the forum, joeybob:-)
This is a shot of a kind of risky view, I mean, a view which may not appear as pleasing on the picture as it is seen by the eye. But I see the job fullfilled!
You have a legendary camera. I have seen many amazing photographs taken with G3. Some claim that its image quality is still not exceeded by the G6.
Anyway, I gather that you've upgraded into DSLR with your new D50. I hope you've found your upgrade fully satisfactory and grand us some evidence of it!

Thank you Tullio - it was very cold. From what I recall it was roughly 10 degrees that morning. Here is another shot near the same place a couple of hours later.

Bahadir, yes I agree that this is not necessarily a "pretty" picture. It is a dark picture of dead trees, snow, water and the sun peering through the trees - generally speaking, that combination just sounds risky as you mentioned.

I struggle with "pretty" pictures. On ocassion I get one right but most of the time - there are flaws. Perhaps, a hair out of place, a blurred movement, or a crying child instead of a cute smile... This photo is not what I'd consider pretty. For me it's all about mood.

Stay tuned for some D50 photos. I've only had my new investment for a month and haven't had much time to use it in a setting where I have felt inspired. I have seen a couple of places that I have decided to approach - when I get a little time I will put the new nikon to work. So far, it reminds me quite a bit of my old 35mm slr - which is a very good thing...
