You're right, I will shrink it down a bit...

^ I think you overdid it on the processing, between saturation, sharpening, and pulling the highlights. It's kinda hard to look at.

yah sharpening is too much. and you should avoid the shadows hitting on his face. i believed those are from the leaves on the trees.

No sharpening applied, not much extra saturation and the highlight pulling: that's a yes :).

I think it's the quantity of the small details that makes it hard. That's the reason I don't like small images for my wide angle shots...

Honest to goodness, I can't make this up. I missed delivery of mine and my new tripod/head combo for landscapes/night sky because I was upstairs reading this thread and our doorbell doesn't work. Have to wait another day. How bad does that suck!?

QUOTED IMAGE

We can always be nit-picking about someone not following the rules, but the image does look stunning!
He is the artist and he decides what to do. If we talk about rules such avoiding shadows (or rather light spots) hitting the face, then we could also say avoid clicking portraits at 14mm :)

those are inputs only. one can either keep it in mind or forget it. That's how one decide his own style or approach.

and that's how everyone learns IMO. that's what i do. i'll take what i think is good and trash what i think is not base on my taste. no arguments.

Good luck.. One more pointer I doubt anyone else brought up. This lens doesn't work with extenders. It puts the focus point inside the lens, even with the smallest one. If you want a creative near macro shot, you have to free lens it. You only need a millimeter or so and you can focus right up to the front element.

Do you mean Extenders or Extension Tubes?

extension tubes... sorry. Extenders wouldn't make much sense.
