About the Image(s)

This photo was taken from the Alaska Marine Highway Ferry in 2018 using a Canon Powershot SX50 hs bridge camera. It was early morning and the misty cloud with the eerie color below fascinated me. I know the trees are not very sharp but I loved the mountains with the misty clouds below them. and despite the soft focus, this photo enlarged nicely to 11x14 and hangs on a wall in my home, a fond remembrance of a great road trip.

Hi Carol, welcome to our group. This is a great image to put up first time, congratulations. The panorama format suits this image wonderfully. Your composition is excellent, just enough sky above the mountain peaks and just enough of the foreground water to give the scene a base. To me, the mountains are definitely the dominant element in this scene and are beautifully sharp, I wouldn't loose any sleep over the trees. I'm glad you've printed it and hung it on your wall. It deserves to be there.   Posted: 06/06/2021 06:25:41

I will not lie....your image influenced my choice for this month. I saw your clouds, mist and mountains and thought of my Glacier Image! So I decided to post that one this month. Like Ian, I would not worry over much about the trees not be tack sharp, the image is about the mountain. I love your layers and in particular the color in the water is an excellent base for the rest of the image. Just beautiful!   Posted: 06/10/2021 12:19:21

Welcome Carol! The picture is beautiful. It reminds me my trip to Grand Teton NP couple years ago. The two layers of clouds in front of the mountains are amazing and beautiful. Very good composition and colors. Great pano photo.   Posted: 06/15/2021 10:44:32
