Hi Raaj, 

A very iconic mountain, that commands our attention. 

I love the tones in the image, especially through the trees in the hillside and up into the avalanche slopes. 

A couple things I would consider are cropping out the small bright mountain on the left. While looking at the image, it keeps pulling my eye away from the main focal point. 

The second is the sky, although I am a fan of some subtle textures and noise, it does feel a little patchy. Perhaps softening it a little and applying a little noise reduction will bring our eyes out of the sky, back to the mountain. 

PS. I loved the images from this place

Hi Aaron,

Thanks much for your feedback - it is valuable and much appreciated.  I absolutely did get carried away with the sky and agree with you that it needs work.  I need to process the sky less aggressively and deal with the noise for sure.  I also agree with you about the peak on the left drawing the eye.  I went back and forth on that and your comments have made me rethink this.  I hope to be able to reprocess this and post another version for comments.  Finding the time to do so is the current challenge.  There are still many, many images from the trip still on card inside the camera... 🙁

Totally agree with you on that spot.  I think that spot could hold one's attention for days! 🙂

Cheers!

I actually miss the ghost mountain shown in the first version.

I love the snow on the trees in the foreground. I like the first image better, because of the texture and detail on the mountain and the overall balance. Is it cropped at all? Because I wonder what would happen if you panned left a bit. Maybe the ghost mountain could be more deliberate, or maybe there is just too much there.

Something in between? I like the first one better but would soften up the clouds and the foreground.

I agree with Ulana - something in between.  On my 27" iMac display, the pine trees in the foreground look to me to be over sharpened - too "gritty".

Hi Raaj,

 

I actually like seeing the larger mountains off to the left.  So I like the clearer image more than the foggy one.  Both are cool fo different reasons.

After just viewing your stunning Bow Lake pano in color, I'm hankering to see these images in color... 😀 😀
