    I have done landscape photography many times in the past, but never with HDR. Tell me what you think and what I could improve/try next time! Also, I'm new, so hello everyone!

    Absolutely a beautiful job. The only thing I'm not sure about is the misty blue fog on the left.

    I like it! I'm into abstract/montage photos so I think the blue is a nice touch.

    Ya that would be smoke from our early morning campfire. :grumpy: Didn't notice it on my camera screen when I took the shots. Uploaded them onto the computer and was very disappointed. Next time I will have to be more aware of my surroundings. Thanks for the response!

    The blue on the left is a bit extreme, but like said abstract, and great for yuor first time.

    As an outdoorsman, I am very jealous of you. I wish I knew you had camped there so I wouldn't feel so "cityish" by saying "that misty blue fog" instead of campfire smoke! :lmao:

    Ah yes I noticed your picture. That is Wheeler lake on Wheeler Peak New Mexico, quite a steep climb!

    The largest I've done so far is Mt. Washington in NH at 6288ft. Probably much smaller than the mountains out west though! I'd love to hit a 10,000!

    great great great shot! i love it and its soo beautiful . i do agree with most people that the campfire smoke isnt the best in the shot, but hey at least you were real camping!! lol.. anyways i love the HDR when its subtle like this, most people try to overdo it and just absolutely kill it where it seems fake.. what software did you use?
