    Great shots! Really like the second one - and the fourth one could be hanging in an art gallery :)
    (the lighting in the fourth one stands out. Is that all natural lighting?

    Spooky - that's exactly what a friend just said, which is ... a little flattering, and strange. I think I see what you mean, though. The light is totally natural. It was overcast, but the sun peeked out at an angle behind us. So between the tree's shade and the clouds, it's got a dark background and well-lit subjects. I saw it, squatted down, changed the settings a little, and got lucky.

    I should say these were all on the old Monolta XD5, the 1969 Rokkor 55mm f1.7 lens, and Ektar 100.

    Beautiful images. The 4th really stands out, but I also find the other very appealing.

    #4 is a showstopper

    #4 impresses me somewhat like a boat - George Washington crossing the Delaware, Capt. Bligh and the mutiny, or even a raft leaving the Titanic. Quite the image...

    it has a very cinematic feel to it. I'd crop it to 2.35 : 1 and center it in a 16 : 9 black rectangle leaving the widescreen black bars at top and bottom.

    I tooootally see the "Washington crosses the Potomac" in it, now that you mention it. Thanks for the kind words, all. Feel like I did that one right, for once. Feels good.

    Congrats, indeed a special shot. Some luck (as you say) + also a photographer that knows what to do with the opportunity = the recipe for an awesome photo. I think.

    I may be a little late to the party, but that last shot is one of the best photographs I have seen in a while. Museum quality, in my opinion.
