I'm agonizing this year, seems I feel I must top myself and I'm in a position I never thought I'd be! Oh well, am going to stop and just enjoy it again.

here are to possibilities for me, the first one I haven't done anything to but take out electrical wires. I haven't placed it or anything. The statue is bronze, situated on the confluence of the Little Arkansas and Arkansas Rivers in the heart of Wichita. Blackbear Bosin designed and commissioned the artpiece and donated it to the city of Wichita with the name, Keeper of the Plains. Not sure if that should be the title or not..anyone around here would know it but does it make sense withOUT knowing it?

This one is of a fisherman predawn in Prague this past December. Are the lights that cause the refections too bright? I have taken the lights down but taking them out makes it lose it's 'balance' since you don't have a reason for the brightness in the water. HELP! :confused:

I like the second - the boat on the river. I like the lights as they are. I'm not too fired up about the first one since it looks like a typical vacation/tourist photo. Just my opinion...

Hi Linda;

I too like the boat. I made some adjustments and hope they help give you some inspiration.

maybe it's my moniter, but i'm not seeing much details in the shadows?

Might be the compression, there's plenty of detail in the shadows. In fact, have considered brightening slightly the brick wall.

thanks, D. Craig for the idea, not sure where I want to place him. I'd hate to think Prague could be turned around so easily!
