Well done Josh - great series and I'll follow the crowd on #4. However, I do want to mention that #1 is a well done use of "anchoring" in the image.

Exceptional photographs.

#1. Very good decision of placing that post in the foreground to the left. Adds "depth" to the picture. Great landscape as well.

#3. My favourite of the series. Beautiful lighting and reflections. Well done.

#4. Also a fantastic image. However, maybe the upper-right area is a little too bright?
Thanks AlexD for your thoughts on the images. I agree about the sky being too bright in #4 - perhaps the k-7's HDR mode will help me out in these situations . I may actually bracketed that shot with HDR in mind (I'll have to go back and look - some of this series were bracketed, some not), anyway, there wasn't much detail in the sky right there anyway, and it probably looked basically white at that time too, so it's probably accurate if not exactly photogenic .

Thanks Marc - I probably learned the term "anchoring" in high school photography class, but I've since forgotten it, so thanks for teaching me the term (if not the concept )...
