Obviously I like No.1 as it reminds me of where I came from (that's why I returned to my previous avatar). However, I'm guessing it's either from around Lethbridge or somewhere in MB (judging by the crop on the right).
The flash certainly picked out the RR Xing sign, but IMO it's not needed because to anyone that lives there, the simple "X" is an icon in itself.
You've certainly captured the feeling of stillness and quietness of the prairie landscape. I'm going back in August, and this is one of the types of images I want to capture.
I'm surprised at at well controlled the sun is - any tips other than the EXIF?
Thanks Glenn. The photos were taken near Wallaceburg Ontario. Lots of farming around here, and almost prairie-ish. As far as the flash on the sigh goes, it was necessary because with out it it would have been alost dark because I was exposing for the sky. For tips, all i did was try to expose for the sky, then keep playing with flash output until I was happy with the result. If I were to do a shot like this again, I would have to give a remote flash a try. The 2nd photo my flash was set to full power.
