Great looking shots. With our size limit here I would have liked to see them without the frames. A lot time frames do make pictures look better on the .net, but I think yours would look great without them on here.
Thanks for the kind words. No I wasn't on a boat, just on the other side of a small lake. If my memory didn't fail me, I was using a short focal length (something between 17-20mm) and a low angle of view to add some depth to the scenery.
