Here's some shots i took a little after sunset at the local lake here in columbia county, arkansas at Lake Columbia.

I'd like to know which crop works for all of you. i have a wide crop, and tigheter crop, and a panorama. just curious to see which one you all like the most.

i'm thinking of leaving the two little pieces of wood sticking out of the ground since it creates a natural "triangle" for the eye to see, but if you think it should be taken out, just let me know.


thanks so much for your help and critiques. it's much appreciated.

this is my favorite, for it seems to have a visual "circle" of land that goes on in and out of the image, with the water in the middle of the circle and the branch offsetting the right third line for the focal point.

some have said the foreground is distracting. i just want everyone's opinion.

thank you all so much

I like #1 best. The foreground materials in #2 do not add to the quality of the pic.

When properly processed, the foreground works well to provide the viewer with more interesting elements.

These types of images really should be matted or framed to achieve the most impact. Doing so provides a nice buffer between the the forum background and your image. Presentation is part of a good artistic rendering anyway so why not practice that too.

Thanks for sharing.

#3 gets my vote.....the foreground in my opinion, does seem to detract the viewer from what could be a more interesting picture. I did a quick conversion to b&w, hope you don't mind, the colors of the original were interesting, and a b&w serves to present the picture in a different kind of mood....

I'm with Rodney on this one. The slightly cropped and processed foreground (and the framing) make a good result from #2.
