    I am pretty happy with them. Woke up today and decided i was going to get a pic of a sail boat with the sunset. The fact it worked out just how i wanted was quite shocking lol
    But still, i want to run them by you guys for some helpful critiques if you feel i need some :)
    I know the sun is blown out, but i didn't think the photo would look right if i brought the F stop up higher to make it toned down. I felt this way added more to the pic. Agree or no?

    While waiting for the sun to set further, i walked behind the lighthouse and saw this old man staring out at the lake. I dont know which version i like better so here is both

    I think a crop like this works much better...

    first shot is awesome I think. The others dont do anything for me, which doesn't mean they are bad, just not as good as the first one IMO.

    EDIT: Whoa your Jesse James! Dude build me a chopper, I have the money, but I dont want to wait 3 years!!!!

    I think it'd look better in B&W. Something about the color version just doesn't do it for me. :dunno:
