Thanks to all of you for your comments. Wanda, I'll start with my lens first. Since Aug. 2008 I've used a Canon 5D with the zoom lens (24-150mm) that comes with the camera. That's it. Before that date, I used a Nikon Coolpix 8400 with a fixed zoom. No other lenses. I have images from both cameras on my site. Technique includes shooting in raw, occasionally using a ND filter if the sky is much brighter than the land, and occasionally using a tripod (in very low-light situations). I mostly use the 24mm wide-angle setting at F11 aperture for landscapes. I prefer to shoot in early morning (hour before and hour after sunrise) and evening (hour before and hour after sunset) although I can't always do that so try to make the best of it regardless of the time and weather. I shoot with natural light--no flash (don't even have a flash). Processing is both with Corel PaintShop and Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I toggle back and forth between the two until I am satisfied with the image. Can spend a lot of time on one image to even the light, retrieve detail in the brights and shadows (if warranted), and achieve a pleasing color balance. I don't do HDR although some think I do. I prefer to keep the processing to a reasonable minimum to avoid unnatural effects and digital artifacts, depending on the subject and my intent for the image. Exceptions to this are always lurking. I usually avoid the over-processed, even garish, look. I find that my eye is evolving (as a relative newcomer to digital) and what used to look fine to me may look like over-donel now. That's about it--hope this helps.

Great perspective, lovely colors of gold and blue, nice division of the frame. The log in the front helps to emphasize the magnificent depth of field. Can you share your techniques and choice of lens?
