About the Image(s)

I captured this image of the mountains range near Smokey Mountain National Park at sunrise. Adjusting for contrast, hue, saturation and burning and dodging were involved with processing. Nikon D810, 24mm-70mm at 24mm, 1/90, f11, iso 6400.

Good composition with the trees framing the image and a lower area in the mountains in the center drawing me straight into the image. The image is sharp with really good depth of field.   Posted: 02/12/2021 10:58:54

Image captivated me immediately, it drew me right in and kept me focused. Great depth of field. I had an art teacher who would talk about the "window to nowhere" that sense that the scene extended into infinity. This image has that.   Posted: 02/20/2021 09:13:52

Very nice landscape photo. I like the rolling hill and fog between the mountains.
I am not sure the blue color shown in my monitor become purples. There is no red color in the sky at all.
Such landscape photo I would try to made it wider as panoramic. I would crop out the down side to have the rolling hill standout.   Posted: 02/20/2021 19:12:45
