from my fishing trip

I'm a very lucky man to live in such a beautiful area, and have good friends to go fishing with.

Here's some pictures from the last 5 days at a friends fishing cabin.

I wasn't driving

The 1st, 4th, and 6th pics are just great in terms of technique and composition- great work!

There's definitely way too much sky in the 3rd, though.

Yeah I like the green lake one too. The one after it is probably good too, but I think the others being so bright detract from it a bit.

Hi Little Laker:
I'm glad to see your post, and really like the pictures. I have to agree with Adam The 1st, 4th, and 6th, are the best shots. However all are nice, I like the composition of the 3rd, and 5th, the colors are really pleasing but Your 3rd, shows too much sky. Your 5th, I like the reflection of the sky on the water, but you need to add just a little fill light or correct the highlights just a little to lighten up your back ground I think there is just too much shadow, but I find the shot very interesting. Keep shooting, and posting.
Good Shooting.
Cheers: David

Little Laker, you are right, you are blessed and I am glad to see you taking advantage of it. Your 1st picture is excellent composition and your 4th picture strikes emotion. You for sure have a good eye, just need to polish up the technique, I am the furthest from a professional photographer so you can take that with a grain of salt. Thanks for sharing your photos and keep up the good work!

Thanks folks,

About the sky picture.
I live in the hottest driest part of Canada, so I've seen very few clouds in the last 4 months.
And when I have seen them they've usually been black and resulted in a thunder storm.
As a result I found it intresting.

I guess that it just proves that we all have different tastes, which is what makes this hobby so intresting.
We'll never see the same picture twice

I agree with you 100% Little Laker And I guess if I we're in your place I would be thrilled to see this kind of Sky. I know here in PA up untill last week the sky was hazy and looked overcast with no rain for a month, it was so dry. Last week that changed with 4 streight days of good soaking rain. when the sun came back out Sat. the sky was so blue and briliant. It's like the rain washed all the haze away and showed us what mother nature would call a good house cleaning. As I said in my last post I liked all of your shots and i liked the composition in each as well.

Good Shooting
cheers: David
