A great picture Chris! Smile
I love the strong geometrical elements in the composition and the light is just amazing with such a beautiful sky as background.

I think that if you turn it into a black and white image it will have a really interesting abstract feeling Grin

Thank you Vanilla! Grin
Yes I remember I was there waiting and waiting and waiting until the light was dim enough to have a good long exposure that would soften the water surface.. luckily in Venezuela you don't get cold weather!

Linlithgow Castle, Scotland by M_andrea

Linlithgow Castle, Scotland

Thank you for your comments! Grin
That's a great castle here in Scotland, in ruins but the structure is really well preserved and it was also a beautiful sunny day.. So I was looking for a way to capture the magnificence of this castle taking advantage of the strong lighting coming in through the windows and the 'roof'.. I was really lucky to get some clouds in the sky as well!

Ballintoy by canonfan

Ballintoy

I really like the composition of this image and the sky is perfectly expose, so beautiful with those white clouds Grin
However I think the white balance is a little bit on the green side, at least for my taste, apart from that this is a great picture!

God's Wish by prabhusinha

God's Wish

I really like version 2 because it has a more abstract feeling. The flowers over the black floor kind of make a pattern which I find really interesting

Study of a Fence Post by Disee

Study of a Fence Post

Hi Disee, I know exactly what you mean! Smile
I've been trying to learn to use those softwares as well, also to get a more 'professional feel' in my images and it hasn't been easy.. But I have found Lightroom to be A LOT more friendly than Photoshop.. So I would recommend to check it out.. Also I bought some Scot Kelby's books on that matter, I have learned a few useful things, but what have REALLY helped me (because of its simplicity) is this website:

http://mansurovs.com/

by a photography team called The Mansurovs. They have a lot of photography tutorials and tips that I have found more simply, useful and easy to remember than those of Scot Kelby and it has really helped me to improve a lot my digital photos!!

So don't feel like you have to limit yourself because Photoshop is so difficult to use and check that website (they have a lot of info about Photoshop as well) and if you have the opportunity I really recommend you to get Lightroom 3. It's amazing all you can do, from setting the right white balance and exposition to eliminating noise, applying graduated filters, and it's not that difficult to learn if you follow the tutorials on that website.

Keep on photographing whatever you want, because the most important thing that really sets apart great photographers is composition (they all started in B&W film, right?), the rest will come eventually!
