Your composition is par excellence.

The mixed lighting though in some show some highlights close to blowout in one area and a tad underexposed in another area.

Also some CA shows up as well in some of the shots.

Taking into account that these were on the fly and at HIGH NOON the pictures are very, very good in spite of the difficult conditions you had to work with.

I would love to see the Entrance to Paradise shot under more flattering light. I'm sure it would be gorgeous.

As Viz states, the composition is fantastic. Especially, number 2. There are some blown highlights, not sure what you can do with that... it's more of a limitation of the technology. One of the first things I bought was a ND filter for my digital, which is always in the bag during the non-winter months. It "seems" to help better with blown highlights than exposure comp. Might just be my imagination.

Great series!

Thanks, next time I should try an ND filter and see if it helps or maybe a polarizer.

I've tried toimprove #2 with PP for Ladyhawk. It helped some , but when something is blown there only so much PP can do. Here's my attempt:

Great shot of the Japanese garden, Nick. Looks like it was from the famous, but short-lived TV series "Police Squad." Great series--too bad it was only on for a couple of months.

I liked the last shot you did with PP improvements...
although some blown out parts (around the little bridge), the difference in the tree makes it all worth the effort you took to do the improvements. That tree looks soooooo good!
nice one.

Thanks Dee, I did the best I could, but I can't put back what isn't there. Part of the bridge is totally blown out with no detail to recover.
