Definitely agree...some dynamite frames here!
Raven....when were you up here in my neck-o-the-woods?
Here is a shot from today, I think this is a sunset....can't really remember been so long since I saw one
This is looking right over from where you took your shot....well, not quite, as I'm further north, but these are the Olympics in the background.
And looking up the beach, at low tide, as I waited for the sunset....
A couple here before the sun came out....

Obviously I need to get to France, asap. Amazingly beautiful images, Prospero. Love the one with the upside-down sign.

There's been a lot of posts here since I said anything.
06AWD, I really like that Vail shot. You might do a selective red desaturation on the trees. Or that might not work at all, hard to say.
Thanks Prospero. I had a few shots with no polarizer, but I decided both in the field and back home that the polarized ones were best, notice the uninteresting color of the sky at the right side were the filter was weakest. I actually did a little photoshop burning on the left to make it more similar to the middle. I agree with the Wengler, that last shot of yours is best, I like mountain light like that, snow always helps light.
Eddie, my parents have a place up there where I was for a few days after Christmas. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes a little water craft in my landscapes. I like yours too, but I think you lightened the blacks too much in post processing (or at least, that is what it looks like when I do it, nevermind if you didn't).

Some sunrises from this week.....

Woah, one and three are brilliant. 1 especially draws me in then explodes across the sky and along the horizon (there is a spot of lens flare or something that you might darken), and three is very peaceful looking. Actually, four is pretty good too.
My suggestion is to post just the very best of your shots. By posting only the best two or three, you can improve your "average" I have discovered. Whether or not you are a better photographer that way, people will think you are a better photographer (if that matters to you).

I need to start waking up earlier.
Eddie, the first image of the dock with the little house at the end is beautiful. The other two are a bit noisy, but the composition is nicer. And the first sunrise image... wow.

Well, actually it's been weirdly warm and dry here in Idaho for the past two weeks, but just before Christmas we had some good storms rolling in and out. Shot these two out near Craters of the Moon National Monument... I tried the lone tree in B&W but it looked really flat so I think I'll stick with color.
As always, comments and criticisms welcome.
