About the Image(s)

Two years ago my sister (from MI) and I drove from WA to MI spending nine days exploring. We spent some time in Glacier National Park. My sister is not a photographer so I wanted to respect her time also and not do my usual time composing, using a tripod and spending the time I usually would photographing. This is an example of an image when I didn’t use a tripod when I normally would have. As you can see it is a very contrasty scene and I did bracket -2, 0, +2 while hand holding. I think I used the railing of the bridge across the river to help me stabilize the camera. Taken with my Sony 7RIII, Tamron 28-75mm lens, ISO 100, at f/13 and 1/40 second. I post processed the -2 stop image as the highlights were not blown out. Processed in ON1 2021 RAW, adjusting highlights, black and white points. I added some dynamic contrast and toned down the rocks in the foreground. I should have had a polarizing filter on but I don’t think I did or the rocks would have been less shiny.

I like how the foreground begins with rocks then leads me around the river. What attracted me to the image were the ominous colors and murky sky in the original. I think the answer is somewhere between the original and the final process. In my opinion, your final image has shadows a bit too high in the leaves. I think more green and less yellow would add to the final image.
