This is a shot I took on the trip last week. More of a panorama I think.

Will appreciate feedback and suggestions.

Mike

Lovely. Calendar worthy pictures. Looks like a great place to fly fish.

I really like the layered look of the photo.
  • first the water[/*]
  • second, the trees resplendent in their fall foliage[/*]
  • third, the distant mountains[/*]
  • the reflection of the clouds on the still water is tremendous and the clouds in the sky[/*]
  • the lighting is magnificant
    [/*]
  • wonderful pix....I'd blow it up and frame it. Definitely a keeper

Thanks Lesmore for your kind words.

It is funny you mention fly fishing, as I am an avid fly fisherman but passed on going fly fishing that afternoon with some of my colleagues. I decidedto take pictures. They went, caught some nice fish, but were more envious of my pictures as they also are into photography.

Yes Mike this one is much better.

My only worry is that the sky and land are almost 50-50 split and it's a very dramatic sky, so I'm not really sure what I should be looking at.

Overall though there is plenty to see, and in a big print it might be quite involving. I think I would be tempted to try a couple of crops with a bit less sky or less foreground. I think either one would help, but prefer a crop where you take off some sky. Or even a panoramic format where you lose both sky and foreground.

Hi Peripatetic,

I have tried cropping out some of the sky but then cannot get the picture to fit an 8 x 10 format. Guess I do not know how to that--also do not know how to change it to a panoroma. Can you provide me some information regarding how I do the things you suggest?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Sharpshot Gal,
Thanks for your comments. I am going to post a picture I took a week ago of Mt. Moran from basically the same location, as soon as I remember how to post pictures!! I haven't posted one for almost a year.
Glad to hear from a former Wyomingite!!

Mike,

That's a beautiful shot! I was just out there about one month ago and loved it. Just in case you're interested, here's a slightly different perspective from the same area (the lighting wasn't great and I haven't done anything with the picture). It's amazing what a difference the changing foliage and sky make (unfortunately, my vacation wasn't long enough to wait for the leaves to change ).

Hi Jazzer251,
Guess you were commenting on the picture I took last fall. Thought you were commenting on the one I just posted a little while ago.
Guess that is one of the advantages of living in Wtyoming---can take pictures of the Tetons in every season.
Thanks for your comments.
