Some additional images.. We are surrounded by a thousand acres of marsh. I talked to the owner and have gained permission to walk my dog as I wish. I will make sure to keep his friendship!

I deleted the images out of respect, but I have a habit of doing three things to an image in Lightroom, the first two of them with these.
1 - Up the Blue Primary Saturation (Camera Calibration)
2 - Adjust the Blacks, Whites, Shadows, and Highlights (Basic)
3 - Work the edges of the Point Curve (Tone Curve)

The first step gave the image more 'depth' and the second opened the shadows. The jpg had a lot to offer so I suspect the raw even more! S-

Love these the way they are. I can almost smell peat burning in the first two. In the third, I see an echo of Christina's World. Now Piet's World? Thanks. Matt
