I took these during a trip to Rocky Mountain National park last fall but didn't even like them enough to present them and request C&C. I've now reprocessed them using Lightroom (was using Aperture before) and I find that I really like them and think they are worthy of spending time to further improve them. So, I would love C&C on all aspects.
My self assessment:
#1 It's the wrong time of day but it is what it is. I like the composition. This has had no cropping done. I probably should have darkened the bright area of the shoreline on the left. I would like to get rid of the blues in the shadows but don't know how to do that in Lightroom without also affecting my water and/or sky color. Is there a way or is this a job for Elements? I've already warmed the WB some.
#2 Again, wrong time of day so I was dealing with a pretty wide tonal range. The mountain is a little flat especially just above the trees. The mountain has been brushed with additional contrast, clarity and a little sharpening which helped a lot - mostly at the top.
