So several more candidates for the waste bin, but PP'd this way I like them, like the earlier posted one...

I really like it! It's really fun to see people taking artistic control and going beyond the rigid bounds of "realism" and "hyper-realism".

Rense, still prefer the first post over these. Of the three, I like the last one. JIM

They are very well done. Your processing works very well for this kind of subject matter.

Re the above quote: You can't win. Some people only want realistic looking images. I think, in many cases, the issue is, if it doesn't look good or the image is not good to begin with, people will trash it. Many HDR images are like that.

I think the last one works well with the subject matter and composition.

Very nice touch, beautiful rendition. I'm leaning towards # 2.

Rense, I like these and the other set - however, I think what makes the images for me is the high-key (I think I'm using that term corretly) B&W conversion. I think most of them would look better without the heavy vignetting (anti-vignetting). I particularly like #2 from this series, but would like to see the image continue to the edges left and right (it may work for me to still fade out top and bottom).

You don't need to adapt to me feedback - it doesn't matter to me, and I like these results fine, but I know you were looking for comments in the last thread - I just happened to leave 'em here...

Thanks Jim. Yes, I myself like the one with the gull best too, but I think all of these have something distinct...

Josh, thanks for the comments, and thanks! Hereby the second one without the anti-vignetting, on your request. How could I resist...?

Rense, to me these all work as well.
Almost minimalist, but again aptly PP'd and framed.
Suits perfectly and good enough for a gallery.
Well done again.
