Gregory,, the richness of the foreground is delicious...reflections, detail in the trees. Yum. Can you burn in the river in the background to bring out the color and detail. My eye is drawn to the light tone now and the result is it took me a moment to enjoy the foreground.   Posted: 01/02/2022 13:01:52

Congrats to you for winning this contest! What an amazing shot with such gorgeous mountains, foliage and reflections! I agree with Andrew that possibly the light tones maybe could use a bit of toning down in the sky and river.   Posted: 01/02/2022 13:24:18

Gregory, what the beautiful scenery you witnessed! You composed it and captured so well! Reflections are amazing!Congratulations on winning the contest!!well deserved!
just wondering that if you still can bring the beautiful details in a sky, and clouds that lost a little bit on highlights, or maybe to try make it gray instead of pure white... Im glad i still can see details on white glacier, which is not easy to achieve!   Posted: 01/16/2022 13:47:48
