    I don't often post here, but trying to expand my horizons so to speak.

    I took this the other evening after the sun had set.

    50D, 70/200, 1/13, f/9, ISO 400.

    Hi Dave, Interesting image with just the right amount of silhouetted foreground. Nice strip of water with appealing mountains and clouds in the backround. This would look alot stronger as a pano so I would crop out about 60% 0f the sky. Good effort!!

    Hey Dave,
    I'm with Dave Mills on the pano......mostly because those clouds aren't that strong and it emphasizes the mountains even more. I would also try bringing up the tonal range in the MG....from the horizon to the top of the clouds.....more depth there will also help bring this up a notch. Finally.....I think you could get away with a bit of a boost in the saturation.....although that one is highly subjective.....so not necessary.....but just something to explore. Those small tweaks will take this image up a few notches.....so try them out and let us know how it works for you!

    Hi Dave,

    I agree with Dave and Roman on this one. Making it a pano will really bring attention to the mountains and clouds. I might be tempted to add a touch of contrast to the clouds and mountains also.

    Here's the repost.

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

    Perhaps it needs a bit more density but an improvement.

    Dave, Pano presentation is a good choice here and does strengthen the mountain. However, I still like the OP expansive sky. A very different feeling in both images. The OP to me is serene and the Pano says grandeour. I do like the contrast changes. Nice work.

    Thanks Robert.

    In hindsight, I think one of the things the phto lacks is clarity and I have to work on that.

    The nearest island is about 5 or 6 miles away and the farthest about 15 or 20.

    The air is quite humid and some of the humidity can be seen between the islands. I think the humidity sucks a lot of the detail out of the photo.

    Even when a person looks at the actual scene what one sees are very soft pastels and shapes. And for me right now they are much easier to see than to photograph and present.

    Definitely a vote for the pano RP. I also like the change in the presentation of the mid ground with the lighter mountains. I like it! Even though I am not a pastel guy, this is very soft and appealing.
    Cheers, Jay
