Went down to the tide pools near my house.

Shot with a XSi and a 17-40mm.

7 & 8. The dominant sun in most of the others is deadcenter, a very static composition where the eye gets too "locked in". No. 1 could benefit by cropping a bit off the right side to increase asymmetry.

Thanks for the comments. It's weird, I really like #1 but #8 and #7 are my least fav.

I will defiantly have to look into getting an ND filter or a polarizer . Any recomendations on which ones are best?

Anyways, I edited another picture. This is more like the last few in the set.

I've got a Singh-Ray 3-Stop ND grad and I love it for the few times that I get to use it. :o

Was kind of expensive, though.

Those Singh-Ray filters seem really cool..I just might have to get one. If you buy them from their site, do they come with the thing that holds it at the end of your lens or do you have to buy that as well? Anything else I might need?

The holders don't come with the filters. You have to buy a holder first and then pick the appropriate filter size that you need.
