A very dynamic photo of the mountains of this region. The road leads you into the mountains and gives you a view of
the valley region which also shows you the river leading you
again into the mountains. The original photo does not show the road on left? I would probably crop a little more in the lower road area foreground.   Posted: 05/05/2022 10:53:57

Dear Kelly,
In fact, it is a stitching of three digital files thru PS21 and then cropped to finalise the above view. I am attaching the original panorama file for your convient. It was a jeep safari, when we first observed the mountain view, we stopped the jeep and took plenty of shots to capture the environment.
Thank you for your observation and comments.   Posted: 05/05/2022 23:27:42

My first reaction Sanat is that you have two vertical images here with the road as leading line for one and the river as leading line for the other. BUt then my eyes focusesd on the area between the river and the road and that's what took me to the snow-covered peak in the distance. Wow, three very nice images! My only suggestion would be to lighten (I can't believe I'm saying this!) the sky.   Posted: 05/13/2022 19:15:07

Hi Sanat, thanks for sharing beautiful place and a image. The composition and applying lines and shapes in this image is very nice. The first thing draw to eye in the image is the color of the sky, it is too blueish. I would this the original color of sky is better. It is a nice image I like the nature you show.

Sanat, really enjoy the way you stitched this image. The road presents a great leading line that takes us up to the majestic mountain tops. I can image what a struggle it must have been to get there and how much more difficult it out be to continue up the road to to the top. You might try to crop it even more and remove the bottom quarter of the photo and really put the focus on the spectacular mountains. Great job.   Posted: 05/22/2022 12:43:31
