I have checked and it is OK to mention the person who conducted Mark's workshop, though links to the website are frowned upon.

Mark also sent me these details:

"The workshop was conducted by
By Colleen Miniuk-Sperry

I highly recommend her!"   Posted: 03/04/2019 20:31:35

The colors are amazing. the colors in the sky are beautiful and I might consider cropping the top a bit. To me, the main star are the textures, foreground and middle ground. Lovely image.   Posted: 03/15/2019 09:34:52

Stunning colours, and a scene that is so foreign to me which makes it so much more interesting! I agree with Lane, cropping the top slightly will make the rocks stronger. Good job! Love it.   Posted: 03/18/2019 21:57:59

I love the lines textures and colors. It almost looks surreal like it was made by or carved by hand. I like this a lot. It seems worth a look to see if the crop would hone in on the mountains as the main subject and lessen the impact of the sky.   Posted: 03/19/2019 17:24:24

I love the colours and tones. I see the possibility of 2 images from this. The suggested crop from the top and, maybe, cropping the bottom to emphasis the sky and the reflections on the mountain.   Posted: 03/26/2019 15:52:19

Looks 3D. Beautiful image. Love the way you got the foreground, medium ground and background. The tones are beautiful. I feel like I am there in person. Great texture too.   Posted: 03/28/2019 11:01:13
