    Not a bad shot by the way, I like the colors. The plant at the bottom in the middle is distracting though.

    And to post an image, you have to put images tags around it, like this:

    Thanks Ocyrus55.

    So you'd crop the yucca out of the shot.............hmmm.

    I'd put the yucca off center or closer to a corner, and leave some space beneath it.

    And there's really nothing to rip up here. It's very nice. I also like the colors, particularly the orange peeking through the snow.

    I agree with the plant being distracting, but I have to say good job on the exposure. That scene type is really hard to get right. Good job.

    Did you meter off of a gray card?

    ah yes... home. where in the springs was this taken from? I'd also crop the plant and the shadows at the bottom.

    Hmmm - after seeing the second cropped shot, i think having the plants in is better, though with them as suggested tactfully off-center. I think they nicely add a little to create a solid foreground perspective. Without them, the scene, to me, lacks anything interesting to draw me in - just another snow-capped peak. YMMV...

    EDIT: Nice job on the exposure! Forgot to put that in initially - def. a tough lighting situation.... and you really nailed it.
