    Took advantage of the few hours of sun today to get out of town.

    very cool photo! I like how the sharpnest is from the mud banks out to the end, looks kinda like a long tunnel shot with everythign in focus, very nice.

    Very nice composition, I totally love it. I will say though that the foreground is underexposed by about 2/3 of a stop and the background is about a third of a stop overexposed, this is the perfect situation for a graduated ND filter... Don't have one of those? Me either you can fix it in photoshop by using the gradient tool and two layers with the correct exposure. I'd also warm up the image a bit and add a bit of pink tint (but just a bit) as with the clouds it is fairly cool.

    Good example of an exception to the rule of 1/3's.

    Yes, it does work with the horizon line in the middle in this shot, but that is helped out by the mountains breaking the line up too. Still, I would like to see more foreground, and a higher horizon line. Either way, it's a very nice shot.

    Hey Monk, thanks for the tips. I actually have a couple of Singh-Ray ND Grad filters but forgot them in the truck that day. I am still very much learning the CS 2 but I feel like I am in the 2nd grade with a long ways to go!!

    there used to be a great tutorial over on fredmiranda.com for the PS thing... I forget what its called though... Basically put your images on top of each other with the correct exposures from the converted raw press m (set colors to black and white) and grab the gradient tool and drag it up and it should blend the images much like a split nd would do... It took me a few trial and error sessions to figure it out but you can get some sweet images this way. You could also consider HDR software but I'm not a huge fan because you can't do that with slides...
