    Cheers, I took a look at your stuff, you don't do so bad yourself ! You're in Seattle ? I used to go there sometimes when I worked. Liked it a lot.

    Hi Jeff. Yes, just a couple minutes to the north of Seattle. Thanks for the compliment on my site. Seattle can be a nice place to live, when it is not grey.

    Superb piece of work, Jeff. That is a beautifully put-together image.

    Those who wish to learn about shooting landscapes would be well-advised to study it closely. Look at all the bits 'fit' together. Look at how the lines takes across and through the picture.

    Stunning application of the photographer's art.

    I see from your website that it's a popular location for you.

    My eyes simply meander through the image. I think Donald mentioned in your other post about your masterful management of light. This is very evident here. It's a stunning shot!

    I love the flow in this image. Excellent balance foreground to background. Makes me want to see this place in real life!

    Thanks for the capture.

    Amazing

    Cannot agree more. THAT is one heck of a landscape shot. Beautifully done.

    It's a beautiful composition. It looks like you used a graduated filter. Don't know whether it's digital or physical. To me, the demarcation seems too sharp and it catches my eye. Is it possible to move the darker section up closer to the ridge line?

    John - As you can see in Jeff's original post, he tells us that this is achieved through the application of HDR technique.

    I have witnessed times where the sun is at such a point to have that type of line occur naturally. Hills and valleys at times will do this. Although it does look rather straight.

    I love the warm colors in the foreground, the cooler colors in the midground, and then the warm colors again in the background. Just a lot of fun to keep looking at this image.
