SharpShotGal,

Very nice photo for obvious reasons, the sky, the withheld (rstrained) colours. And the content- and pictural contrast between the boats, the trees and the mountain.

Also like your drizzle (nice word; onomatopoetically) pictures in the other thread

Thanks Torgny and Shoturtle the MT Rainer has her ways
some times we don't even get to see her but on days like those I had gotten to ... she is a sight to see and soon I will drive on out to some of the smaller towns to take some better shots in hopes she is awake then... a part of her namesake meaning.

#2 is stunning but needs help in a couple areas.

It's easy however to want to get in too close to the mountain and loose balance that the sail boats need to bring. Those two elements complete the photo and balanced right would make this photo amazingly dramatic. I would have liked to see just a little bit more water below the sail boats to bring balance to the entire photo. The top is framed right with just the right amount of sky above the mountain. Match that same amount of sky with the same amount of water below the boats and it will feel better. Also, as the boats are equally important to complete the image, watch that you don't cut off your important subjects. The boat on the bottom right should be completely included in this shot.

The pixelation wouldnt be there if the hi res files were used. This is a pseudo HDR from a jpeg file.

YES! You have it!! You have so much here to work with and crop closer to what you first posted. Hope you don't mind, this is how I'd crop it.

WALL HANGER!
