    2 polorizers would be the best option for cutting down light though:hs:

    okay so i went back later tonight after the sun was going down so it wasn't so bright.. took some more pics.. left the shutter open longer to give the water the 'silky' affect.

    I like the pictures, but agree, your post processing is way over done. A little compensation here and there is okay. But you're heavily over doing the saturation in your skys and hues on the objects in the image. That looks is great for art or fashiong...but imho nature should be natural.

    yeah, i agree. i just wanted to play with some of the pics cause it's winter time.. so everything is brown and dead.. figured a little color might make 'em look better. some of the pics are more artsy.
