@Frank: thank you!!
Beautiful natural light highlighting the river rock. I always find it fascinating to think of all the volume of water that has tumbled these over time to their current clean form.

@Kevin at OrganicPIX.com: that's a nice thought. these were actually in this sort of pit thing surrounded by cement that water from a building was being directed (don't remember if it was just draining from the roof?). But there hadn't been that much rain recently so it was dry.
light is fantastic!!!

@chris chisu: thanks. no, it's too big to be a needle. i think it's just a piece of metal.
nice light and tones, very good.

a calme and relaxing toning shot,
I like the way the light falling down on the rocks
but I not sure about the nail.

@Pouhou: thanks. maybe i should try photoshopping out the nail or doing one without a nail.
this really grabs me - lovely colour and light.

@baobab: thanks! yes, it seems people prefer my photoshopped-with-much-time-invested images lately -- won't let me off easy. working on ways to "work smarter not harder" though. ;)
It's interesting to see shots from people who do a lot of post-processing (e.g. Craiger and DamnedThing). They produce beautiful images that are something beyond photography... an almost fairytale effect.
There's also something very powerful about raw and unprocessed images, exactly as the sensor sees them. Illuci's recent sunset is a great example. These are perhaps harder to capture - I've certainly had a lot of frustration - and the camera often doesn't reflect the scene as it was seen by human eye. Something I'm wondering is when and where to say to oneself "okay I've subtly improved the raw image but it is still real rather than surreal"(?)
