Well done, nicely composed, beautiful subject. Might I suggest conversion to black and white and a bump in contrast? I don't think color gives anything to the picture

This photo cries for a subject. Rocks provide frame, water the feel and soul, but needs something to anchor it.

I dig it. Abstract as it is, there is a bit of thirds going on here. And I'll agree with the above, left dark pole too close to background objects... if it were me, I'd have shot the poles a little more to the right and the background objects in the same place.

contra Clark: I am (more or less) and architect, and I can say without a doubt that, yes, buildings are sometimes just plunked down wherever. And per this picture, an architect wouldn't be that concerned with a building this distance away.

There are some framing issues here, as in not very interesting, and without being there cannot offer suggestions. What I do find very interesting about this picture is that, because of the atmosphere, the new buildings appear to be fading away, while in truth in today's China the older buildings are the ones in danger. Perhaps an idea to explore. Cheers.

Lovely photo. Unlike everyone else apparently, the tree bothers me. Among the first things I"d have done is clone it out. Also, like the cropped version better, good balance.

Nature Cactus Flower, Spring in the Desert

Ya, I meant 3.2 or 3.5, sorry for the confusion. I was just saying it looks like there was room to open it up some to blur out the background, so could have possibly narrowed the DOF a little w/o blurring the top/bottom of the flower.

Also, and I know your window of opportunity was contrained b/c of the other cacti, but could you have put more height on it shooting almost downward? It seems the flowers were a bit beyond, and a roundish flower with out-of-focus roundish cacti in the background may have been a cool shot. And it would have eliminate some of the middle void in the middle of the flower that I find a little annoying.

Nice shot. If it were me, I'd have panned up for more sky and none of the log. I'd say crop it either where the log/snow meet the rock on the left, or where the lower branch meets the trunk before the bulk of the tree on the right (which I'd do, cleaner corner).

The flower center is very interesting, but I find everything else to be very distracting. I don't think copping it out is the answer; the rest of the picture gives context. But opening it up to 3.2-5 or so would probably do the trick. Honestly, if I had a DA35 in front of that, I'd be neck deep into that stamen... wait, that doesn't sound right.

A few thoughts... First, you either need to crop out the third 'light tree' on the left, or have captured it all. Second, you gain nothing for the pic witht he stop lights and parking ramp on the right. I'd have gone vertical and tried to capture the upper extent of the arc of street lights on the bridge. Further, the IDS should be just a little more to the left, which I would have tried to use as border left.

Move to K-7 or Wait for K-8/FF?

I believe most if not all of the first group describe the K-7, not the K-x. The K-x body is not magnesium (ABS w/ SS chassis), it has no AF lamp, I don't believe it has stereo mic since there is only one mic port and no external connection. It is not have weather resistance seals, no HDMI port, and I don't believe there is anyone who makes a battery grip for it. Even if they did, it'd be something chincy like a k100d grip. It does take rechargeable AA batteries, which I miss from my k100dS to k10d upgrade.

Reasons for K-x purchase area ISO performance, better LCD layout and look than previous generation, better button wheel layout (imo), and size (for those who want small cameras). Now, if I can get that sensor with the k-7's ergonomics and customization, I'd be all for it, but you have two cameras that have great strenghts but glarish weaknesses (a relative term, sure).

If I didn't buy the DA 15 Ltd (and by buy I mean wait for it to ship b/c its backordered), I'd have gone with the 17-50. But I have the 28-75 and am sticking with it. It'll be an awesome combo.

Cityscape The Throne of Stone Arch Bridge

As for as the original image goes, the corner is just that dark. In fact, I've lightened it up to where i'm comfortable with the skyline not getting blown out. Also, I've attached a few more photos that I also liked but didn't quite like as much as the first photo. One with the chair more prominent, one without the chair.

I guess if I have to explain what I was trying to say with the photo (obviously i've failed) is the oddity of this chair on the river, under the bridge, where the bums hang out. It just seemed very lonely. For reference, a link to my buddy's photo, who I think captured it better: Your Last Stop on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

I'll disagree, I think the position of the bike in the photo gives it some sense of movement, of where its been. (or maybe its the beer i'm drinking) Or maybe its the position of the umbrella. if the umbrella were positioned forward, I'd imagine I'd prefer the bike to the left.

Ya, I have other pictures without the chair that were plenty good, when I decided not to have the chair in the picture. It was just a wierd thing, the chair being out there in the middle of the ice. Didn't want to move the chair because A: all the tracks leading to it B: it was getting a little warm, wasn't sure if the ice would hold. When I moved to the left to get the chair in the bottom right hand corner, the lines became uninteresting.

I'll post some alterations when I get home. Thanks for the input!
