    Hi Jeff,

    Must say I like your work quite a bit, it is always interesting.

    I appreciate you leaving the exif data in the images. This way I can also learn from what you are doing.
    You are working with massive files leaving you with images you can do so much with. I would have cropped a bit in both images to bring the main subjects a bit closer.

    In #1 I would have adjusted the WB to get the snow in the valley to be pure white whilst leaving the pink glow on the mountain. I would have cropped a bit to show more of the little village down the foothills of the mountain.

    In #2 I would also crop a little to put more emphasis on the castle. The buildings in the foreground lead the eye nicely to the castle. A tad of WB adjustment leaves the early morning glow on the castle but turns the snow in the shade to pure white, making it look really cold where the buildings are still in the shade.

    This is my personal opinion and may not suit the likes of others. Thanks for sharing.

    Is this the same Castle from the post Castle MKII? If it is then I prefer this one. I found the sun distracting in the earlier post but here the composition works for me.

    Nice light and composition. I suggest you try boosting the contrast in the first one.
