love the first one, steve.

and i like the warm tones of the second, but something seems a bit off... the sky and blue part of the water?
Saw the same thing you did, but figured there was just enough blue sky peaking through to allow for leaving that patch of blue in the water.

And thanks.

Yes, I did. It's a rule I've been breaking for a while. I find you can get away with it, particularly with scenic images that are intended to be artified. It's just another way of looking at an image -- an important exercise for any aspiring artist.

Re: Cross Lake bayou

steve, you're welcome.

and lonnie, well, it's an interesting breaking of the rules. it even seems to add some depth scrunching it up that way.

Re: Cross Lake bayou

very nice, peter. you've really brightened it up.

one alternate possibility on this one; leaving the trunks dark/black would add some contrast and reduce the abundance of green.
