  2. Very nice picture - I especially do like the red / orange glow on the mountains.

    Excellent.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent capture...

    I love mountains, and I love them even more when captured so beautifully.

  6. Interesting title, Shahed. It certainly captures the imagination! I like your image, but the supersaturated look may be a bit too much for some viewers. It's very stylized. People will either love it or hate it!

    Hi Virginia,
    Thank for your comment. My goal of yesterdays outing was to get a picture like this one. So I scouted out a place than setup my tripod and waited for the right timing.
    As the light started to defuse, and was only hitting the peaks, I started to shoot.
    I didn’t add any extra saturation, just my normal landscape post-processing; I bumped up the saturation +5 is PS.
    Thanks

    Just perfect. Just perfect. The curve leading to the mountains, gorgeous light in the hills, reflections half way to hold interest, just enough rock to hold your attention up close. To make this an even more awesome shot, all you needed was a bunch of wild flowers by the rock.

    Shahed - you get light. Bravo.

  9. Love the colors and exposure but it feels bottom heavy. Other than that it's a great shot.
     
  10. This is an extraordinary shot.

    Did you know some people actually spend thousand$ and thousand$ in travel only to find landscapes such as this one? And since you cannot buy a magic moment, I think you've got master shot.

  13. Great composition - wonderful capture.. I personally like what you've don in post processing.

    This wasn't blended was it?

    Thanks Bohdan. This is from one single shot. I had to use shadow/highlight to bring up the foreground detail. :lol:
