Jonathan, you take my comments and yourself too seriously.  My comment was meant in general, not to you in particular.  I have stated my opinion that the photographer should be a silent observer at critiques before, without any comment from others.

Here's a differently cropped version, with a curve tweak to increase contrast without totally ruining the misty ambience...



Yes, that is a car (SUV, if you want to get more specific) on the road in the bottom left corner.

IMO this is too much of a good thing. For me, the image is all about the semi-mysterious foggy ambience of the mountains, and and photoshopping out the midground haze detracts from that in my view. It makes the transition between the contrasty foreground and the totally flat background a bit abrupt. If it was a more typical clear-weather shot, I'd be right with you--sharpness and contrast to the maximum amount possible without eliminating shadow and highlight detail. But in this image, leaving the mountains hazy helps sell the idea that they're much more distant from the camera than the foreground road and vehicle, which makes the size difference even more impressive.

Doc very nice gallery and I love the dissolves between each gallery. I wish some of the photos were a little larger. The photo of the kid in a silhuette ( probalbly badly spelled) is beautiful.

Kate, it really does look cold! And it's a beautiful place. Like the sand - sea abstracts, I love snow / ice abstracts.

Scott - those are beautiful. Waiting for the magic light always pays off.

I'm working on the China stuff - those EOS 1DsII files are huge, but well worth it.

Jonathan,

I agree with almost everything Camilla says. I like the second version much better than the original, but at the moment I like the latest, panorama, best of all. It seems to intensify all of the essential elements of the picture for me.

That being said, cropping a little off the sky of the second one might move that into first place.

I'd like to add that ever since I discovered the LL forum about a year ago, I have found your answers to technical questions to be clear, concise, to the point, and trustworthy. It is nice to have you model for us how to deal graciously with constructive criticism (and show us some really nice photos) as well.

How come I get clickable links now instead of the image as I did before, even the x's, I ma still able to see my previous posts but the ones from today I get links. How dou you get the correct form on the files then? Do you rewrite them in the reply window?

Sorry if it is  a very basic question.

Swan1

Swan2

Took these the other day on Lakeshore. I was simply walking around and I see this swan slowly swimming to shore, so I went down to look. It swam right up to me and started trying to eat my fingers  . Amid all that I got off a few pictures. No post processing of any kind has been done, so the colours are a little off, and I think my flash went off for one of them, ruining the white.

The worst part of it is that these swans have become wholy dependant on humans. They think of us as a source of food because every time they come near us we seem to give them food (I didn't have any, but I know better than to give it to them). Critiques welcomed.

That's because you forgot the http:// prefix when you posted the URL.

The third panoramic version has the most sky cropped; about 2/5 of the sky in the second version is gone, which I think is about the optimum amount. Since the peaks fade off into the mist, I like the idea of not knowing exactly how tall they are; leaving some sky makes one wonder just exactly how tall they are, but too much sky draws attention away from the mountains. I'm not against the notion of making a narrower crop from the panoramic version, but it needs to be just a bit wider than 3:2 aspect ratio to work for me. A 2:1 crop made by chopping off the left side of the 3:1 panorama seems promising, for the following reasons:

1. The notch in the mountains on the right is a center of interest, as is the one on the left. But the one on the left is less so; there's just not as much going on over there. It's competing for attention, but doesn't have as much to offer. So lose it.

2. The SUV on the road IMO is important to establish a sense of scale to convey how big the mountains really are. Normally one would compose an action shot so that the action is going into the  frame rather than out of it; you show where action is going rather than where it's been. But this image is all about mystery and ambiguity and not revealing the full extent of what's going on, so not filling in the details of where it is going kind of adds to that whole mood.

3. The 2:1 crop kind of has a sense of the road appearing out of the sagebrush and then disappearing back into it which is somewhat diminished in the 3:1 crop. This is another factor that contributes to the overall mood of the image.

After all that build-up, you can see the 2:1 crop here. It's a 370KB JPEG. Hopefully someone will find this rambling useful.
