It's a nice series, thanks for sharing.

Had to use high ISO at some points? I see some grain in #2. #2 and #4 my picks, but if only #4 got no humans. Understand that it's impossible sometimes while you're no tour though.

Thanks for viewing.
All were taken at ISO 100 actually. A bit of noise in the sky areas of #2 was probably casued by post-processing. I was trying to get more blue to show up in the sky.

Personally, I don't mind humans in the shots some of the times as they could help to give a sense of proportion or scale to the whole scene eg. in #2, the presence of the people gave the viewer an idea of how big the bridge really was. :)

Nice pictures. My pick is #4.

Same as night86mare, I prefer #4 without the human element (or with one that don't look so modern). Also can pp the few darker leaves at the right.

nice clean shots, IR adds that very extra-sensory kinda feeling to them

the hue of humans look a tad scary though :)
