This looks like a wonderful place to visit. The snow-covered peaks certainly draw you in, and I wonder how many miles they were from where you were standing. The foreground seems so yellow though. Would it benefit from toning that down a little?   Posted: 11/10/2021 10:29:38

Laurie, thanks for your feedback. Now that you mention it , it doesn't look quite right to me either.

When I opened the raw file in Capture One, I found taht the colors were more accurate. I re-exported it and the result is more accurate in terms of color. I have attached the newer version here. Let me know what you think.

This is wonderful. I once to a class about Ansel Adams work and his best (best known anyway) photos had multiple layers. Indeed, the magic number was 5. That number of layers produced the dramatic effect he is so well known for. You have the layers and it has produced the drama. Nice composition.   Posted: 11/10/2021 10:41:55

I've been to Skagway (drove there from Whitehorse) and that whole area is so pretty. There is so much scenery that it can be overwhelming. I do like your 2nd version over the 1st, looks a bit more natural. The background mountains are framed very nicely by the mid ground hills and the foreground with the water draws me in. This is an image I'd frame and hang in my office.   Posted: 11/12/2021 19:55:43
