Nice - I like the hut the most.

Does anyone still live in it?

We stayed in it overnight.

The light and composition of the last two shots are truly impressive!

Well worth printing, framing and hanging on a living room wall!

Excellent work! ;)

Cheers!

The Old Geehi Hut :) That was a really nice stand out in the Kossie National Park. We stayed on the river there for a while last year. Beautiful rocky water up stream and stunning glass downstream... man I loved that spot! Shame that there were no fish while I happened to be there! Great Shot!

Nice shots, to washed out for my taste though.

yep. very nice basic shots here. i only say basic because i would have done a little more with them. they all seem very washed out and hazy. all it would take is some small levels/contrast/curves adjustments to fix that. other than that i think you pretty much nailed it. on the second one, the framing could have been a little bit different....unless you were trying to line the top of the trees up with the ridge in the background.

i tried fixing one of the images a little bit. tell me what you think:

(obviously the quality would be a lot better if you were doing the adjustments to your original)

I think #1 has the most potential, it has a nice sky. I would try being a bit more creative with your pp.

I think your rendition brings too much focus to the trees in the fore and mid-ground and those trees are not the true star of that picture. I believe the OP had it more right to my eye and considering the results he obtained and patience to wait for the "good" light of the day, I think he knows best what the shot needed.

YMMV. ;)

Cheers!

it does and i did notice that. thats about all i agree with though. for one, little can be done with an already compressed low quality jpeg. second, when was it mentioned that he waited for the "Good" light? not saying he didnt but i dont see it anywhere. third, he may know what he wants but that does not make the shot perfect necessarily in the artist's (his) eyes or the viewer's (mine and zucchini's). Regardless it is my opinion that they are too washed out. Thats what this forum is for, giving opinions, otherwise he wouldn't have posted it. :)

I like the Sky in the first and the trees in the second; if I had to choose one I would choose the second. I think the trees (and the entire photo) have more depth after AC's PP work. The trees are so much darker than the rest of the photo, they don't really draw you attention away from the mountain or the sky.

Nice capture.

Thanks for the comments.
No problems with CC.
The intention was to give the images a bit of a painted feel.

The last landscape has good potential...almost looks like a painting...Bit more saturation and maybe burn the sky a bit more?

Good shot nevertheless
