    Lovely scenes MB and I like the restraint you have shown in the HDR processing. Nicely made.

    Even though it is spring and the foliage is abundant I feel there is a slight green tinge to these and you may consider a bit of move from green to magenta in colour balance.

    The first shot really captures the peaceful nature of the scene. The same with the rocks in the 3rd photo.
    I welcome all critique and comments on any of my photos

    Thanks for the comments. RM: I almost always find it difficult to set the white balance/color balance correctly. (I suppose in this context, correctly means as I recall seeing it live at the time of the shots.) First off, I too was struck by how green it was, shooting from the shade by the water on a partially overcast day. It seems so many things affect what we eventually see on a print or on a screen. My camera was set on Auto White Balance. I did make some adjustments using the eye dropper tool in my HDR software by using a grey point in the sky. This warmed the resulting images slightly. I also find that the images change considerably in color and contrast depending on where I am viewing them, on an iPad or monitor, or calibrated monitor, and even in which hardware or software or application I am viewing them. Usually images that I process on my calibrated monitor look very similar in print, but it is important to account for the paper type and use the correct color profiles. So many variables, so little time, and why I love photography.

    As an afterthought to the above, I went back to the photos in Lightroom and clicked on Auto White Balance (more refined alternatives are not available since these are processed TIFF files, not RAW files). This added +25 in tint toward magenta on every photo. So you are exactly right.

    I am the same. I find it easier to see colour temperature/balance issues in other peoples photos more then my own for some reason. I think we get too close and we adapt to what we are seeing during processing and therefore find it harder to identify. I am glad you found the suggestion useful
