About the Image(s)

I was going through photos and located this looking for photos with a “Travel” theme. It was taken early in the morning in 2019.
I was recovering from bypass surgery so I wasn’t out there with the rest of the photographers. Still. The people do seem to add an element to
This photo. The mighty Pentax K 1 full frame camera with the Pentax 24 “ 70 zoom at 24 mm. I used a graduated neutral density filter. F 11 at
1/15th second. + 0.3 EV. ISO 200.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

The photo is really good. The lighting, rolling clouds and observers lining up for the sight. I would not change anything except to dodge the people to have them stand out more. The degree may only be due to variances between your and my monitors, however. I did a rough adjustment.   Posted: 11/18/2023 14:03:26

This landscape has it all Mark. Great interest, play of dark and light, texture and color. You also have the three landscape "needs" foreground, midground and far interest. I particularly like the play of light and shadow upon the mountains. You have exposed masterfully. The folks in the front add interest and give perspective to grandness of the mountains.
Great shot.   Posted: 11/22/2023 14:07:20
