    Waylon photos update: New photos, December 12

    Hey everyone. This is my first new photo post in about a year... (I've been shooting the whole time, I just haven't cleaned up and posted anything.)

    I tried to focus on three things with this image set (as the subject says)

    - Bold color. I'm practicing lots of new tricks for making colors more vibrant.
    - Solid composition. (Ok, this has been a focus all along.)
    - Interesting subject matter. With all of these, I asked myself, "will anyone care?" (So easy to make a photo that's got good composition, values, colors, but nothing interesting going on!)

    Please let me know how well you think I've fared against these goals, or if there's something else I need to focus on.

    Some of my favorites below... and I've got a full gallery worth posted on my web site here

    well you certainly are hitting your goals I'd say...really nice stuff. Hey if you can make dead animals look good...you know you're doing something right
    I think there are a couple on your site that are better than the ones you have here but these are certainly strong pieces IMHO...looking forward for more

    1: lol eazy.... I like the colors, but kinda wish there was a different angle for it or something.

    2: Really nice abstract in this one. I think it would work really well cropped into a diptych setup.

    6 & 7: Very nice composition and colors!

    Some very nice shots! I particularly like 4 (jelly fish), 6 (road through the hills) makes me want to get up and go! 8 (tumbleweeds) just a really nice bit of nature captured in action. 7 (out of the second batch - cove) has some beautiful colors to it.
