    You and your gear raven! I'd have never dream't of putting a lens on the ice like that. It makes a good shot though, maybe you could sell it to a camera insurance firm. The last shot is nice I like the composition contrast between the natural and the debris man has left behind. I'd have preferred the trees to be better focussed with the hils oof though but I guess dof and real world distances dictate what is possible. Overall though I like the second shot the best excellent reflection. I'd love to see more of that scene if you took any, wider angle perhaps? That sort of natural/industrial shot is something I like to try to get.

    kgosden is closer in this case, I didn't think of it, it fell out of my pocket and stopped rolling there. I just took advantage of its position, since it was there. Now you might say, "be careful, if that fell out of your jacket pocket and there wasn't ice you'd be S.O.L.!" I'd say, if there wasn't ice I wouldn't be wearing a jacket so it couldn't have fallen out could it?

    The waist-high desert bushes will be flattered to hear you called them trees.

    I took quite a few of the reflection scene, my (borrowed) tripod was anchored there for several hours. See next post.

    A little way away on the same playa. I expect this thing to produce some pretty spectacular shots as it dries out and the cracks expand. Alternatively, if the opposite happens and it gets covered with water. The spectacular clouds left just in time for this visit.

    Yes difficult to choose raven. I like these two cropped more to a pano style like this. Just me though.

    Raven,

    I like the more golden color of the 11 and 14mm shots. Not certain which wat I might frame/crop the shot.

    So more of a 3:2 ratio? Hmmm, might sit on it a while. I'm thinking I like 11mm, first attempt, and sunset best (down to three in other words).

    Looks like we pretty much agree on favourites. As for crops that was just what occured to me at that moment. I did it in picassa and picassa suggested several other possible crops, as it does, many I wouldn't have thought of and several I didn't like. There are actually a lot of different crop possibilities in those shots. What I think I was trying to get though was more of an even distribution say possibly a scattered feel to the debris in the water.

    Well that's a first. Maybe there's hope for me after all . I took them too recently for me to consider what to do in an unbiased manner.

    14 mm for me, it's got interest through out the frame while still maintaining context
