I really like the foreground, but there's something a little odd about the clouds... Graduated ND filter?

The colors go together well, but I might have liked just a bit more lightness in the blues. Maybe something to accent his jeans in the sky?

Great surroundings, beatiful picture... :o)

05/03/2006 07:07:24 AM
Nver heard of that one ... but the image is amazing - looks like a polarizing filter must have been used. 7
