Hi Luc: #2 is interesting because it shows the juxtaposition of a huge city with mountains, and #3 has semi-abstract qualities that are pleasing. I think the last one has perhaps the greatest potential - but the patchiness of the colour in the sea, and the overall finish, aren't quite right yet - well, that's how I see it. The rest leave me a bit cold as they don't have a lot to say to me, having never visited the places.
Thank you for your comment.
According to various feed-back #2 came out the best of the lot for exactly the reason you pointed out.
I am still working on my Lab workflow going through the book at the same time.
This part of Peru is really an acquired taste not only for photography. It is dry, dust settle everywhere as there is no rain and the range of colors is very narrow.
As for the last one, I wish I had been on top of a hill with a tripod instead of behind the glass(es) of a plane window. that said this is not a part of the city where I would go at dusk with my camera equipment :-)
ps: I was looking at your web site wich outside of being very , very slow to load as some really nice pictures that are probably even better on a larger format or print.
I found that for small JPG you had a very clean not over sharpened detail. Is there any specific worflow to prepare for web that you are following and that you might share???
