    Beautiful shots, it's interesting to see a telephoto applied as a landscape lens.

    Thanks for the positive comments!

    Indeed, I seem to "see" many of my landscape shots at around 100mm. That lets me pick up interesting details in a scene that would be lost with a wide-angle lens. Here's another example from the same hike - but ignore the composition, I shouldn't have cut off the field at the bottom of the frame! :x

    For long shots like this, air quality is a major limiting factor in the final result. I find the Clarity slider in Lightroom works wonders...

    Nice pictures I gotta say, though in #2 I would have liked to see more of the foreground, i.e. the tree not cut off, and less of the boring sky. great job with exposure too.

    Thanks!

    You make a good point about the sky. This is starting to look like a pattern... something to pay attention to next time out, I think.
