    Thank you for that. As a novice I'm not wanting to teach my grandmother to suck eggs, but if you use something that makes things look different to what they are, isn't that taking away the natural look?
    I'm not being a critic, I'm just asking the question.

    Your eye can capture a much larger range of light your camera. On an overcast day the camera can't capture the details in the sky and land like your eye can. The camera can only do one or the other. For example you can have a well exposed foreground and a white sky with no details or you can have a sky with some detail but an overly dark foreground. Does that take away from the natural look?

    The use of filters can improve an image if done correctly. Sometimes to just get it back to what you were seeing when you decided to take the shot. Sometimes to enhance it beyond that.

    Great silhouette effect - lovely colours - also the bird kindly flew by at the right moment!!
    I would just say that the horizon needs a little straightening if you were to do a final printed copy

    I hope these fit in. From the top of Mount Hollywood...

    Looking southerly at burned bushes and downtown Los Angeles. We have wildfires every year in Southern California, but this year some of Griffith Park got scorched.

    Gee....I'm beginning to feel I'm bogarting this thread, my friend

    From today.

    The sunlight peeking through the forest.....







    And then, after work, as I climbed out on the bluff instead of my normal beach elevation ones....

    Just about down:




    A native maple clinging to the edge of the cliff, waiting for springtime....




    And the last rays climbing up to the heavens.....

    specialK - lovely images - tastefully composed, I think the 2nd one gives the best sense of depth
    Eddie - those rays of sunlight, particularly on the 1st one, are wonderfull!!

    Looking at these images has just blown me away, absolutley fabulous. I obviously have a lot to learn, but make no mistake learn I will. I especially liked the first pic of the sunlight coming though the trees and hitting the road.
