    I like #1 and the last one is pretty neat, the middle ones seem way oversaturated.

    :cool:

    Thanks. I might have gone too far on the cloud ones. :o It's not that much different from the original though..

    3 and 4 seem kinda boring compared to the other 3, but I really like all 3 of those so...

    #2 seems crazy wide and really deep, which really makes it crazy, and I love abstract stuff like the last one...

    I don't see a consistent style through those. I like the first one, the sunset ones seem like they're just normal P&S shots

    Just back off the focus manually somewhere that has lots of lights (at night)

    My style tends towards surreal / abstract with lots of vivid colors if possible :o

    #1 is cool.

    #2 feels like fire and brimstone is about to rain down.

    I like the first one but cropped a bit. The others don't do anything for me.

    some minor tweaks added. I'd have to spend more time with it to smooth out the blocked up highlights.

    I think you meant to say "more tonal range" because the second one has more contrast. However, I disagree. I like the power of the second image better. I don't like the blocked highlights but then again, it's not my pic so I'm not screwing around with it anymore. I'm simply trying to find it's full potential.

    the pictures of the clouds are cool, but they seem like they're missing a subject. would make excellent backgrounds to a portrait or something similar :hs:

    i like the headlight one as well.

    the last one makes my head hurt though
