    Beautiful colors. It looks a little dark on my monitor, but I'm willing to attribute some of that to the scan. ;) You might show off that DOF a little more if you sharpened your image somewhat.

    Did you take several views? Such a beautiful area. :)

    i hate progressive jpegs. but besides that it's a very nice shot, what you could do is try to get rid of some of the blue shift from the background i.e. make it darker (i know terri, we should calibrate our screens :lol: ) but besides that it's ok.

    Thanks for all the great comments. I took about 200 photos that day. I have some that I'm going to make panaramas out of. I use Progressive scans so if people have a slow connection they know something is happening and don't leave. If people would rather not have progressive scans that fine I can change it. I'll do some edits and repost.

    The first one is fine. It's not dark at all and the colours are spot on.
    I calibrate my monitor regularly, though.
    Nice framing with the trees.

    I think the best tool for a shot like this is the shadow/hilight adjustment to bring the trees out a touch. I also used curves (make a smooth 'S' shape) and USM.
