About the Image(s)

Nikon D750, iso/200, 16mm, f/22, 1/160.

A strenuous hike up to Tomyhoi peak via Yellow Astor Butte. 14 miles round trip and lots of elevation. Solitude and expansive views into Canada. If you look closely you can see the borderline.

Tomyhoi peak is above from where I shot this photo. I didn’t make it to the tippy top. though close, 200’, false summit,as time and technical climbing weren’t on my side along with age. Glad I didn’t as the fog rolled in on my descent.

I like your mountain pictures. I worked on this image and opened the foreground and some areas of the background with color dodging.   Posted: 11/07/2021 16:39:33

Thanks! Neal.
I like your added touch especially the light on the peaks along with contrast and definition. A more presentable image. My take is a little flat though reflects conditions at the time.

Nice image, but I think Neal's improvement really makes it pop.   Posted: 11/09/2021 08:46:04

My eye immediately went from foreground through the image to the clouds.That is well done. The work Neal showed was a great improvement.   Posted: 11/13/2021 07:18:09

I really like Neil's tweak. Made it much more dramatic.   Posted: 11/15/2021 07:42:11

I liked the way that you handled the snow fields in your composition. I was wondering if there might have been a little more detail in the white clouds and since I seem to have been playing around with everyone's image this round, I tried to see what I could pull out by mainly working with the contrast. I don't know if this is much different than what Neal has done.   Posted: 11/17/2021 17:37:34

It is a very nice mountainscape with perfect foreground. I agree with Mr. Dennis to adjust the highlight of the white clouds to get more details.   Posted: 11/18/2021 07:22:52
