    Blake I like the way you have caught the cloud leading back to the snow-covered mountain in the background. It creates a triangle with the mountainous horizon.

    Hi Blake. I experimented with your image by lightening the dark areas in the foreground. In doing so, a lot more details became visible and I thought made for a better image.

    On my screen the only areas showing no detail are the trees in the very front, the fields are darker, but still showing detail. Is it showing darker to you?

    Hi Blake,

    It's a very nice panoramic image.

    Yes, Blake, the entire foreground is dark on my monitor. I can see some detail, but need to strain to see them. Perhaps you have your monitor set much brighter than I keep mine. I calibrated mine with a Spyder 4, but admittedly, if we both did the same, the results may look a bit different.

    Hi, Blake. The foreground looks a bit dark to me too on a calibrated screen. Also you may experiment with cropping a bit off either top or bottom to move the horizon off center. IMO the sky is rather bland and cropping a bit to move the snow covered peak into the upper left portion of the frame may be interesting.

    Photo critique aside, it looks like a lovely area.

    I'm working with this photo some more. My screen is calibrated as well, maybe it's just that I like the dark tones. I'll experiment and post a revision in a little bit.

    I like the repost better. There are times when leaving or enhancing the dark tones works well, but IMO this image needs the shadows revealed.
