    I love the composition of #3, although if this had been mine I would've tried chopping maybe the top 5% for balance –just personal taste, of course. I think the subject is interesting and the lines are positioned very strategically. I also think this one could use just a bit more pop, but being a post-processing zero I'm not sure what to suggest. All the nitpicking aside, it's a very cool image.

    get over the ridge and there is a massive snowstorm, the clouds were almost black in the morning, and it was 3 degrees in the valley, columbia is a 350 square km icefield i think? but small compared to the coast mountains. even so, they are retreating!

    thanks! ya i agree with the top of the pic now that i see it, the first 3 pics actually are un edited too, i did bracket, but thats not cheating :D i used a grey gradient filter on them to make a natural HDR kinda thing, brighten up the lit areas and darken the sky, worked better than I anticipated.

    #1 needs a little contrast and sharpness, i really don't know what is your focus subject here, i found my eyes roaming aroung the image.
    #5 is a cool shot, love the composition here.:thumbup:
