The image of Mt. Fuji is just breathtaking. The dead trees in the foreground are a bit of a problem, but it's still beautiful.   Posted: 06/10/2020 11:47:59

The Mt. Fuji part is stunning and shows the glory of the mountain. I wish you had moved--if possible--to the right, we could see more of the mountain and less of the foreground which does not add much to the image.   Posted: 06/13/2020 09:55:39

Hi Judy, thank you:-) If I recall, it was challenging finding an ideal spot, I also traveled light and only brought one 16-35 lens with me on the trip but a 70-200 would have been better in my opinion. After reading articles about landscape photography, especially for Panorama it seems to be lens of choice and then stitch the images laterally & vertically. That requires having a 360 pano head to adjust the parralax - I ordered one as I am getting my feel wet with 360 images but won't have it for some time unfortunately. The good news about this image is its resolution being 50mp I have room to crop it and show off the mountain better.   Posted: 06/13/2020 15:26:03

Thank you Karen. I had not noticed the dead trees until you mentioned it:-) Not sure what could be done about it...   Posted: 06/13/2020 15:09:52

I have to echo Karen and Judy's comments about the beauty of Mt. Fuji and, unfortunately, about the trees. I usually travel with four lenses - 70-200, 18-270, 10-20, 50. If the scene can't be handled by one of those it's probably a macro shot.   Posted: 06/14/2020 12:31:23

Stephan, I travel not so light by taking only my 28-300, unless I know that I won't have any long distance shots and then take the 16-35. You ask about the tree situation. Crop from left to just to the left of the top of the 2nd tree, as DD requires no standard aspect ratios and the remaining dead branches. Then I would clone out the ends of the dead (or not yet awake) branches with branches from (left) tree, 1, 2 and 4 using a mix so branches are repeating patterns. Sorry, my Mac did not want to download your image so I could try it out myself. The Mt is beautiful.   Posted: 06/18/2020 17:14:17
