It was an absolutely gorgeous day here today, sunny, warm and refreshing. A great day for a hike in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park.

As I was hiking through the park, a fog bank quickly rolled in and just as quickly disappeared.

Yet one more foggy pic

These are nice and dramatic looking. The only one I don't care for is the one with the fallen tree. It's a cool scene to have an image of, but the composition isn't interesting.

2 and 3 are very similar. If they were mine, I'd probably pick one to be the keeper and to show off. I think that putting two very similar photos next to each other, especially when the sky is pretty much identical, weakens the effect they would have individually. 3 is the more interesting scene to me. The composition would look better if the sky was trimmed off a little above the treeline, but I don't know that your original is high enough resolution to make an effective panoramic style image.

Thanks, Corpsy. That's just the kind of feedback I was looking for. I tried your suggestion for #3 and did some cropping of the scene with the fallen tree to change the composition.

Hi Toshi! You've got some lovely atmospheric shots in there, I think #3 stands out as by far the best to me, I guess I'm with Corpsy on this one: keep the best and and file the others away as "too similar". Having said that though, I like your second edit of the fallen tree - it's always tricky to get a good compostion on subjects like this - I never seem to manage it anyway - but this one is pretty good I think. :cool:
