I really like the view you have captured here, and the skewed angles of the window frame add an interesting kind of "foriegn/distant" perspective that give the scene a more exotic flare than if taken without the window frame, and adds an anchor at the same time. Very cool! 555

Well worth the effort required! A very magical image. There is just enough similarities in the patterns of the posts in the water, the ocean floor and the sky to tie everything together in a beautiful way. The composition is fantastic. Great perspective. David (dgarr)

Great image Robert! I usually don't care for the soft/silky effect given to rapidly moving water with a slow shutter speed, but in this picture it emphasises that the mill is the main subject so the softening of the brighter water in the forground is great for helping to focus the viewers attention on the darker mill farther back.
Wonderful perspective and composition. Quite well done.

Very good graphic depiction of capitalism at work. I am currently in Thailand and this is not something isolated to the Olympic Peninsula, it is a global problem. You've captured the essence of the problem here very well.

Very nice James: Having worked some with macro I know that it is next to impossible to achieve sharp focus of the entire subject. If you can capture some sharpness, as you have here, then you are ahead of the game. Normally the eyes would be the center of focus, but given the sillouette lighting of this, it's not a big deal.
I like the way you've treated this, the darkness works well with the composition.

This is a wonderful picture. I love the mood that you have captured here. I had an idea that I wanted to try with changing your composition a little, so I have posted a workshop. I dont think think that this was helpful, but I wanted to show you the idea I had.
Hugging on a Horse by annaw (90)

Very good capture. You have captured a very tender scene wonderfully. The picture is well framed, though it might have worked out well to include the head/face of the horse as well just because the horse is an important element in the picture and a very strong part of Mongolian culture, but keeping the boys centered as the main subjects works very well here. Great shot.

Nice shot of these gers/yurts. The highlights on the yurts are a little blown out. I tend to have the some problem a lot and is difficult to avoid especially when the camere is set to choose it's own exposure.
I am thinking about visiting Mongolia and want to ask you about your travels there.
Congratulations to you and your wife!!!

Great depiction of life in a small town. Your note helps a lot with this, to know how you were feeling.
The photo feels a bit off balance to me, like you should've included more of the scene on the right, but I can see that you wanted the perspective of the building on the left, so I understand why you took this picture in this way. Good shot.
