    I spent a few days here last fall and this was sunrise one morning. Though shooting some HDR, this is a single exposure. Thanks for any feedback.

    Hey I've been there!! What a super location I thought Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons was magical and so is the lighting on this image. I may be tempted to reduce purple and magenta just a little - not to eliminate just reduce slightly and I would crop some water off the base to a little below the snow reflection.
    There appears to be some noise in the image, I wouldn't have expected this at ISO 250.

    Great colors in this one. The sky and water look quite noisy. The composition is right on. Like the geese as well.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback. I think the noise was from post processing as I ran "detail extractor" on NIK which tends to enhance noise...here's another version I think is a little better.

    35mm on the 17-55, f14, ISO 250 0.3 sec exposure.

    The 3rd version works better for me. When using Detail Extractor or Tonal Contrast on landscape imagery I find it almost essential to erase any effects of the filter from the sky, water, or other similar textures that will become noisy when the filter is applied.
