    It was a dreary morning in Minnesota but I managed to make the best of it and get out of my funk and take a few photos. I'd been sick the past few days, reading this and other photo sites so I really had the itch to get out.

    These are both of Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis with my Minolta Rokkor MD 50mm f1.4.

    I like the second one as the land and the island appear to be floating between the water and the sky.

    Very nice. I saw mist coming off of the lake here over the weekend and hope to capture a few similar shots. Yours give me a high standard to hit!

    One of the first M43 shots that I took last january when I got my G1, i.e. found out about M43 - I was "wet behind the ears" and knew nothing of RAW, LR3, Spyder pro and all the other things that this marvellous forum has introduced me to - thanks Amin - (and of course Admin - the mods I mean)

    PS - there is mist! - and I've now twiddled in LR3

    G1 with kit 14 45mm

    Hey All,

    Zach I actually way prefer the first image - the diagonal lines from the right - the curve into the picture. Nice elements in my opinion. I'd probably try "popping" the fall colors a bit more just out of curiosity. The second one is nice but I don't get or see the "floating" and it is more centered and balanced than I like. Just an opinion though.

    Yeah, you know, before I uploaded it, the second one looked more interesting. The white in the sky and the water looked virtually identical therefore it just looked like a band of land in the middle of nothingness. And in that, I thought it kind of looked like one of those images that can be the lamp or the old lady depending on how you look at it :) However, the sky and water look different on the uploaded jpg, so not as interesting. Thanks for the feedback!
