Thanks, they were taken at sunrise (the second one just before and the first one just after) but it was cloudy, so muted rather than spectaular :)

Using Rule of thirds to bring the horizon on the upper 1/3 line makes a nice difference. Also, the colors are very nice, so a little saturation boost would be great.

I wouldn't touch number 1, except maybe to darken the foreground plants which look like a flash hit them. The color and composition is quite amazing, though. The shape of the puddle is great too.

Thanks... it's hard to tell in the pic but the white bits you can see on all the plants in the foreground is frost!

Nice images. The detail in the foreground is certainly nice. It would be nice to have had interesting sky details to help pull your interest back there. When we have skys like this we tend to minimize the amount of sky included and focus more on the foreground. You used the post well as a leading line that helps pull one back into the image.

I think you've managed to capture some lovely detail in the foreground of both shots. The bland skies couldn't exactly be helped.
I do however think that both shots are just lacking a real focal point. They have lead in lines but those lines don't actually seem to lead to anything.
Without being there myself though, its difficult to say if there was anything more you could do about that. If there's nothing there to use as a focal point then I guess its just tough luck. :lol:

On another matter, you should check out the POTN SE UK thread. There are some great people on there and we try to meet up fairly regularly.

you can find the thread HERE


No sense and unfortunately not enough money.

Thanks for the advice mr peabody & Elljam both very useful... There is a bit of a lack of focal points in the distance in that location, if the sunrise had been an interesting one, that would have made a difference, but with the lack of focal point or interesting sky in future i'll use phil's advice and use less sky

I'll have a look at the SE thread thanks
