About the Image(s)

Shot with Canon 6D, ISO 250 ,f 8 ,1/320 sec, 35mm on 24-105 canon lens. Original looked good so I simply used focus magic and in Photoshop CS6 I made luminosity masks to improve the brightness of various areas.

Isn't nature wonderful? Look at the different shades of brown, reds and greens. I love the puffy clouds lingering across the image. The only thing I might consider and not even sure but you might try cropping the top down to the top of the mountain. The gray sky doesn't add anything.   Posted: 03/15/2019 09:41:37

Thanks. The sky is not exactly gray but where the haze goes up to. I tried one crop that is not bad, but it does cut off a cloud on the right. A blue sky would not be right. I could make it whiter. Cutting lower than the attached crop would chop off the mountains. Any alterations you would actually make to change it would be welcome.   Posted: 03/17/2019 17:22:06

Wow. So many really different and interesting scenes this month. Harley, this is beautiful. I cant stop looking at it. I wouldn't crop the top, myself. I think the sky gives it more depth. Beautiful. I want to book flights right now!   Posted: 03/18/2019 22:00:01

I am ok with the top. Gives the fog/clouds some room. Very sharp! Low lying clouds add depth and impact. Good colors.   Posted: 03/19/2019 16:55:06

I also like the crop the way it is. The sky acts as a stopper to make me go back into the image and look at the wonders of nature. Your processing has really helped to bring out the textures and colours.   Posted: 03/26/2019 15:54:23

I like the clouds in the image too. Just magnificent. Love the colors and the tones. Just to see that in person is wonderful. Love this image. I would not change a thing.   Posted: 03/28/2019 11:06:13
