    Must be one of those 'Joisey Garbage trees ... I heard they are imported from across the Hudson.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Is it me or is your contrast a tad too high?
    Nice shots nonetheless :-)
    Frank try bumping the Clarity in LR a little and lower the contrast a bit. Just experiment and see which looks better.

    I don't use LR. I start my editing with Adobe Raw then open the image in CS4. I am using a laptop so my screen is not as good as your monitor. I do bump the contrast up first then make my other adjustments.

    They seem better than before, but still a bit too much contrast.

    Nothing wrong with you pics. I love them.
    I noticed on Flickr that one of them is +47 for contrast which confirmed that you did bump it up a little too high.
    But other than that they are fine!
    I used to do the same thing but now I can see better then

    How do you see that on Flickr? I cannot even find the EXIF data on there. When I post my images from there I cannot get the info from my image either.

    Thanks

    Frank

    I just found where it is. LOL There is alot of info there.

    Thanks

    Yup I like to keep all my info intact so that other people can see them (saves them the trouble of asking) and I can go back and see what settings I used.
