About the Image(s)

We took our grandkids to ride the ski lift at Snoqualmie Pass here in Washington about a month ago, and I took this image from the top of the ride up. It was a beautiful summer day with a lot of clouds and mist moving about in different directions.

I took this image with my Nikon D750 and the 28-300 zoom set at 62 mm, 1/500, f 7.1, ISO 100.

I opened the NEF file in Camera Raw and then in Photoshop, I used SEP 3 to convert to B&W. I like to look at the different pre-sets, but then I played around with the contrast, brightness, and structure to get what I wanted.

Larry, this is really a very strong image. Outstanding result. This is a keeper and needs to be printed and framed. Jerry   Posted: 09/13/2021 11:11:23

You have captured a dramatic scene with all those clouds and that one main mountain top peaking through them. The tree tops just holding the base. So it works sort of.
The problem I have, the main peak is so dominate it is make the right side of the image a wasted space. So I think there may be two other image in here that also work as well if not better. See my crops.   Posted: 09/15/2021 06:44:21
