Manaslu

Is this one boring? I wish I had spent a day or two in this area. I hope to go back someday.

Certainly not boring, but I do find that dark FG rock a little annoying. 

Love that glacial till water, though.

Asia?

I don't know. I suppose there isn't one. Actually, now that I think about it, I remember thinking the red rocks... some strange algae I'd guess.

Absolutely not boring at all. With this shot, I feel like I'm sitting there, feeling the fresh air, looking at the white peaks, enjoying this glorious moment…

Spectacular place. I find the framing a bit too tight, looks like a scene that is requiring to be a bit more wide?

A truley epic landscape shot.  No need for a focal point when shooting this vista.

Well now, if you removed the mountains and the clouds, and the rocks in the water, you might have "boring," if that's what you want. But without those "improvements" I think it is stunning just as it is.

The low angle does it.

It's a fine shot, Murph. Looks like a painting Albert Bierstadt would do.

But then I'd just have a shrubery? Or two...

I think a photo works if it makes the viewer wish they had been there looking at the same view, and this shot certainly does that for me.

So boring it isn't..

In fact it's quite lovely.

Overall I like it! There is something unusual about the light though, gives the feeling of moonlit but something doesn't entirely fit.
