    More Missouri River and environs. The first is the Old Fontenelle Bank, established in 1854 but went under in the financial crisis of 1875. Later it became the Sarpy County, Nebraska Courthouse in Bellevue, NE. The others are of the Bellevue Bridge and a view across the "Wide Missouri."

    Nice....I like the blue skies. FWIW, a little more contrast might be nice.

    Howdy Don,

    Really a great series, especially those last 2, love the deep richness of the blue sky, and the very nice compositions and crisp details.

    One suggestion, the images are too close together for us to get to enjoy each one separately, if you could just hit the enter button 3-4 times between each entry it'll put a nice spacing there.

    These are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to nice to be squashed up:biggrin:

    pretty cool...........
  8. Nice images Don, you gotta love the dramatic sky on the last two.
  9. Howdy Don,

    Yes, I think your beautiful images show so much better, now if I can

    talk you into posting them in a little larger size so they fill the screen I'll

    be :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    I usually make mine about 875-900 wide on landscape format, and then about 725 high on Portrait mode.

    Still loving those last 2 images, very nicely done!!!

    thing about IR is its totally about the post processing...
    these are a great start, but you can make them even more impactful with a bit of PP work.
    Not sure what if anything you have done to them, but most IR needs some black level enhancement....and some basic levels/curves tweeking.
