Nice one! The cracked mud is pretty cool
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

No doubt it was helped along by the rotating, sliding, grad ND filter and the "tripod" which was the smallest gorrillapod available in Walmart attached to a sapling that swayed in the breeze.

I especially like the second with the foreground. The second doesn't have foreground, and also has a strange color cast even compared to what I would expect from a shot when the son was recently down.

The strange coloration makes these look like HDR images, no?

dan, this is no HDR.
i lost my trustworthy DPP and use now Aperture program which is not that great. still have to install Lightroom which must be a better tool.
photos taken with GND filter + Warm Color Filter and fill in flash in the second shot (a small pop up gizmo on my camera) to fool the camera a bit.
perhaps i have to reprocess, but i thought that vivid coloration would make images less boring.
as regards after sunset evening image you will not believe but it was about like this, just more grayish i would say, so i decided to add a bit of color.
anyway, thanks for opinions, perhaps i have to play around with them again perhaps for more realistic result.

Everybody needs more landscape photos. Same Ruby Mountains.

I really like the composition and point of view in the butterfly (fritillary of some type?) The flowers and mountain are nice in concept, but don't work as well. I think it is the bright lighting on the out of focus distant hills drawing the eye away from the foreground.

I agree with that I have to deliberatly look down to the flowers where as the butterfly draws my eye straight away.
