Hi all,

Spent a week in Yellowstone and the Tetons including one morning at Oxbow Bend.

Shot at 28mm, 1/8 sec., ISO 250, f/14, manual, 7DII, 17-55mm lens, tripod.

Thanks for any feedback. The sky was really nice that morning.

I like the light show on display and the vivid colours.
I might shave some off the bottom? That would make the wading swan/duck more prominent in the composition...
Your processing has left the image details overall a tad too smooth...?

Hi Paul...a beautiful scene! I do agree with Morkel on the smoothness, especially the detail on land. The upper portions of the sky seem to have a fair bit of noise present as well. I would consider performing a bit of clean -up on the water, especially the dark bits.

Hi Paul. A really nice scene, beautiful colours/composition. However, I think a panorama crop (I often use 16x9) would suit this image better, and allow for some of the foreground to be removed. Cheers.
