    Shot with D2x, RAW, Nikkor 105 1.8, Sigma 70~300 4.6-6.5, Tokina 11-16 2.8
    CC'ed in Light Room.

    Thanks for any pointers!

  2. I think that I should be the one taking pointers from you... LOL...

    But if I was to be picky, there were a few shots, #6,18,23 & 20 that had a bit too much blacked out ares and I found it too be a little distracting...
    Maybe do a crop to either remove or reduce but thats just my liking...
    The only shot that did nothing for me was #7 as there didn't seem like any point of focus or interest, just a mass of green...

    For some reason I really like #16, maybe part of it was the angled horizon and that the tree to the right had fallen partly and was almost vertical...

    But great series of shots... Thanks for sharing them, you must have had fun out there capturing them...

    First - that's a LOT of photos to critique, so I'll just make a few comments.

    #8 is a nice composition, really leads you into the photo.

    The B&Ws are nice but seem dark. Having more range from white to black would be nice.

    #20 could be cropped to level the shot

    Some of the colored shots seem overly saturated. Is you monitored calibrated?

    It is Calibrated, but I might be overdoing it by a bit. I hope you liked them and thanks for the input.
