Thx for posting KRS. The pics represent some good memories I think.
They look a little blue to me; some of these guys can probably tell how to adjust that or change your camera setting when you take them.
Are you in AK yet?
I'm with BTK. I think I would like it warmer too. After the Sun goes down it's just the blue sky, and a little distant sunset color lighting things up. It can get pretty blue. Setting you white ballance to "Shade" or some similar setting can help. Of course you can just adjust it after the fact too. Lightening it up a bit might help too.
I do like some of the contrasting elements in here though. Perhaps getting closer to the rootball on the other side of the creek, and making it a more dominant part of the subject would be an even better shot. That or maybe standing off to the left a bit more and making the creek drft off at more of an angle.
Hope you don't mind me trying a little editing on your picture.
Good input guys, and no, I don't mind the edit.
Photography is a fun hobby. Some pictures on this forum look like they might be moneymakers.... but for me, it's just for memories.
The memories are what its all about above everything! Great shots and as will much of alaska I have seen so far that looks like a magical place!

I'd reccomend using a slower shutter speed in that situation, the whole picture is really underexposed on my monitor at least, then you get the silky creek affect too
I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
