Hi Tami, I like the way the handrail points to the mountains and the clouds seem to explode above the mountain The green hills in the front and the blue mountains in the back make a nice contrast, but I wonder if the sky seems a little oversaturated? It's certainly a place I'd like to go.   Posted: 03/02/2023 10:53:34

Hi Tami, what a lovely view you have captured. For me the colours in the distance (mountains and yellowed section of the sky) look a little unnatural but I do know that at times incredible colours happen. I love the light and colour on the mountains that are at the front of the your image.   Posted: 03/13/2023 02:11:27

Hi Tami. Very nice scenery. The fence acts as directing lines. I agree with Kirk and Terina that the colors are a little off at the horizon, especially the clouds. I am wondering if you use a little too much "dehazing". A polarizing filter might have helps in avoiding this.   Posted: 03/14/2023 20:01:03

Good pic Tami, I agree with the others, well captured. May be a good idea to tidy up the saturation in the sky but apart from that all looks good.   Posted: 03/23/2023 00:48:36

Hi Tami, I agree with Pierre, this is a nice scenery. Like Geoff suggestion, I might want to desaturate the sky a bit. My eyes start from the brightest part of the sky and enjoy nice back lighted green hill. I prefer not to include the handrail into the scene.   Posted: 03/23/2023 20:46:41
