    We learn and learn and learn! That's part of what makes photography interesting. And "the art of framing" is a lifelong quest all on its own!! I know what you mean though. Many times I've wished I took more photos of the subject, in different ways. Now it's not uncommon for me to stay in one place *forever* taking shots

    I have the same thing, I can spend a long time thinking how I want to compose something and usually try many compositions of the same thing.
    When visiting a place with people who don't take any pictures, I find that this habit can be really exhausting. In order to make sure that the group doesn't need to wait for me all the time, I find that I have to walk twice as fast....

    Gintares, that gives you an excuse to go back to that place . Seriously, I find that going back to the same place over and over again, really helps in strengthening your composition skills. You will start trying out lots of new things in that way.

    Here's a picture of the Delftse Hout, a group of small lakes very close to my home. Yesterday was a day with fast changing weather. Rain and sunny spells came with quick succession, which made for some nice cloud formations. Despite that, the water was very still, giving great reflections.

    This is not a HDR, but was edited heavily in Capture NX to give everything more pop. I used a polarizer to cut out irregular reflections on the water.

    I hope you all like it:

    prospero, you have another great shot here

    agree on places and else, it is not easy when you try to frame something and your family hangs around waiting. walking ahead of them would also bring complaints of me not having interest in my family but my camera. my daughter always kicks me in the back for this ...

    Terrific Reflections

    Prospero, great shot. I love reflections. Water, mountains and trees with some clouds are great subjects for that. I live a long way from scenes like that, but here are some shots just a half hour down the road from where I live.

    Edge, I love your desert shot #2! Do you have more? What interesting surroundings. #1 looks oversharpened, and/or overcropped, to me. But I hope to see more shots from you!

    Thanks Bynx, Gintares and Edge.

    Edge, excellent shots you got there. Beautiful scenery. Good job on the exposure and composition. I agree with Tori about the oversharpened look of the first, but it seems to me it's caused by too heavy Jpeg compression.

    Here's a pic I grabbed with my little old Canon A620. It's from Shenandoah National Park in Virgnina. Pic is from the top of Hawksbill Summit.
