    A cloudy evening but kind of liked the texture on the clouds at Castle Mountain in Banff.

    10-22mm lens at 11mm, f13, ISO 100, 5 exposures combined into HDR.

    Thanks for any comments.

    Nice scene overall. Like the foreground elements with the wild flowers. Nice detail throughout.

    Thanks, I really fell in love with the Banff area, hoping to get back within a year or two.

    Though I like the image. I feel the image quality is bit down.

    I am thinking of having soft water. I like the clouds which add to the image.

    Beautiful scenery, I appreciate it is an HDR image, I wonder how it would look layering and masking the images (presume at differing exposures) and processing without HDR effect. The image looks as if it a little bit beaten up, i appreciate that often how HDR is - just curious to see a more natural look. You will no doubt realise I am not much of a landscape photographer so don't take my comment to heart

    I think Krishna makes a great point...a long exposure would have blurred the water, which would draw our attention to the flowers and the distant mountain. I do agree the HDR seems to have given this scene a bit of an over-processed look.
