caught something, too....



C&C welcome. The top is the tammy 10-24, the lower my standard D-FA50.

I think that I would prefer the horizon to be a bit lower as there seems to be a lot of blank space at the bottom of the image - more like this perhaps?




Hope you don't mind me playing with your image.

I really like the minimalistic look of the first one. Perhaps the snow could be a little brighter though, seems a bit too grey to me?

Best wishes, Kris.

hmm. I think I will maybe re-process and crop...

believe it or not, this is 15 minutes by car from our house. Which is smack-bang in the middle of a 100000 inhabitant town....

I'm finishing off the selective sharpening of the others, I might not get around to this for a day or so.

thanks for the ideas!

I do like the first.
Maybe a bit brighter as Kris said, and maybe B&W...

But it's nice shot as it is IMO

Personally I think the fish shot had more potential - more interest, more potential for contrasting texture and colour. The first one is good but a bit 'standard' while the fish could be made all your own.

I don't know the english names. I never learned them there. I think it's pike (hauki) and the other was claimed to be "abramis balleris", which I also can't translate.

It will get eaten, I know that

I quite like the first one but I was waiting for it to load and then realized i was looking at the hole image (I think for it to work it needs to be cropped)

I thought carp and maybe a dog fish

actually I've just realised there are three fish!

The other one is probably a bream.

I was trying to get the feeling of emptiness that I never remember getting in the UK: there's nothing out there but white for the next 50 kms and then again for another 200.

Bret I've had a little play with your image hope you don't mind




I've cropped it, burnt some detail in to the sky and added sepia what do you think
