Hi Carroll,
I think this is a great monochrome image...Wonderful composition and lighting..Remarkable sharpness in the mountains for F4.5!...Just 2 questions: 1.whether you considered further `de-noising' the image?--to me it looks a bit noisy towards the middle of the image.2.Did you consider darkening the sky in the upper right quadrant further?...The brightness leads my eye out of the image.

Your choice of monochrome was perfect for this scene. It has the effect of giving the scene an other worldly effect.I would also go along with Norms comments. I like it.   Posted: 11/14/2019 05:44:57

I just showed this to Shirley, she had only one comment, Beautiful! It might be interesting to see the color image, but I suspect this is far more effective in mono.The great contrast in the ridges of the volcano are wonderful. You might consider cropping the bottom a bit or reducting contrast in the lower right to help keep the focus on the volcano, but this is a great image.   Posted: 11/16/2019 22:18:08

The detail in the volcano ridges is wonderful. I would also agree that the sky
could be darkened in the upper right corner. Great image.   Posted: 11/17/2019 10:19:14

Wow, Carroll! I love how the mist or fog surrounds the mountains and is settled in the one crater. I knew nothing about Java (besides the computer programming language and the slang for coffee) and your interesting picture made me look it up and learn. Thanks.
You've got great tones here and the contrast in the mountains is fantastic.

Thanks all for the comments. I'll relook at noise Norm & John. Stan, a copy of the color version is attached for Shirley. Actually I've put in two because of the vignette, this one has vignette. The sky is a replacement, original was just too plain.   Posted: 11/18/2019 04:38:55
