    That is definitely the Bow River in Jasper National Park. The composition is great with the river leading toward the mountain along with the foreground and middleground elements which are also a necessary part of most scenics.

    The wide angle makes the sky very effective but unfortunately flattens the ground area. I would have gone with a longer focal length such as a 50mm.

    Nice shot, I like the dramatic sky.


    Doesn't the Bow run through Banff, and not Jasper?

    Jasper National Park is in the province of Alberta, not B.C. On the B.C. side of the provincial border, there is Mt.Robson Provincial park.

    Banff National Park is also in Alberta, and when you cross the border into B.C. there is Yoho National Park, Kootenay National Park & Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park. Glacier and Mt.Revelstoke National Parks are also near by.

    Very nice. I like the color of the sky and the texture of the clouds in this image.

    ah my bad, i knew we crossed into alberta somewhere but i'm not sure where. I was under the impression that Jasper was partially in alberta, but its been to long to be sure.
    I see your point with the foreground though, unfortunetly i cant go back to try it again :p

    Very cool shot...I like it a lot... I did a very quick (sloppy) edit of it to show what I would do with it in PP.
    I will remove it if you like.
    Cheers, Joe

    dramatic sky, but the rest leaves me a bit flat... doesn't really seem to have a focal point. and it's a bit too dark, unless you were trying for a gloomy, dark look...

    How would i prevent theforeground from appearing flat?
    Is it a problem facing wide angle lenses, in otherwords can be corrected by zooming in or is there something i can do about it?

    Wabasso has no more walk in sites due to people leaving food and attracting bears, what a shame.
