    Nice! Is there a trout stream down there that the water eventually drains into?

    I wish there was. Instead, it is named for John W. Trout, Sr. Monroe County, IL farmer and landowner, 1811-1895.

    Caimi -I love the geometric structure of the composition. On a personal note, your nature photos bring me joy and frustration. It's still gray here and spring's arrival is currently 4 weeks behind last year. The trees are still nude. Sigh, no leaves!

    Lovely composition, although the sky is a touch over-processed (to me, anyway) and tends to grab my eye away from the rest of the image.

    We had a dramatic sky that day - pre-storm. But I see your point.

    CR,

    We're only a day or two ahead of you. Just seeing green in the trees - more each day.

    It is a lovely image and I'm really nit-picking. I'm not saying that the image would necessarily be better with a less dramatic sky, but I just observed that my eye was drawn away from the landscape and to the sky. And I could certainly be accused of overcooking a sky at times (let me introduce exhibit A).

    I also realize that you didn't ask for my input w/r/t this image, so please take any comments or criticism with a big grain of salt.

    DJ,

    No need to back off your point. It was a valid one. I could lower the volume on that sky a bit.

    Really nice. I know it was a mistake to let go of the 14mm but I never took a picture as good as yours with it :).

    The Pan 14 is a really nice lens . Capable of brilliance and clarity and it could easily be your main lens for m43. I'm reminded of how good a lens it is each time I use it which, I admit, is less often than I should.
