    Two people find interest in something small in scale while surrounded by large scale beauty.

    Feedback more than welcome. :)

    Ohhh. it's very biiiig isn't it!

    the detail you've captured is superb. :thumbup: And the scale of everything does play with my mind a bit. I'm glad the people are in the shot. If they weren't it would just be a boring 'flat' photo without any depth to it.

    I think it's great,,, but feel there's a little too much white blank area at the top. it sort of makes the mountain look smaller, unfortunately.

    I won't lie... it actually is a pretty darn small mountain. More of a big rocky hill, actually. :mrgreen:

    I'll post a new crop in a little while. I think I'll crop the top about halfway between the top of the mountain and the upper limit of the frame.


    Thanks for the reply, Meysha!

    Very nice shot Travis, I think the crop will definitely benefit this image.

    Here's the cropped version, in case any of you are interested. I like how it looks with less sky; thanks for the tip.

    Very nice! I think the crop looks much better... maybe even cut out a little more sky.. make the "moutain" seem bigger than it is.
