Ready for some harsh C&C. Anyone?
And a Rainbow shot
I've tried thousands of times to capture the feeling of sights like these.
They come out ... boring. I've decided that it is impossible to capture some places' feeling.
Or else I just don't know how.
The reality is that I was very lucky this morning to capture such a nice shot, AND I played with the photo to add contrast which helped quite a bit.
And you shot it or cropped it vertical for what reason?
I love saturation and vibrance I think it could use some tweaking in those areas or this couldve been a neat HDR shot
Shot it portrait and landscape, and I liked this one better. Gives the sun and shadow over the land a real chance to play, and the clouds give a sense on strength and majesty.
Posted the landscape shot in op as edit, nice, but I liked the portrait better.
Thanks. Tweak away, I'd love to see it
Now that's better. To each his/her own for sure. It's all subjective, and nothing wrong with vert landscapes (I do them all the time), but I think in this case the horz works better. While I see what you were going for, I don't think there is enough leading you into the image for vert. Again, to each his/her own.
HDR? good grief.....no... Do not ruin this image
Wow what a beautiful place! I do prefer the first image, I think the portrait orientation gives a nice sense of depth. Also love the last, who wouldn't love a rainbow shot!
Check these out.
Done with HDR. I don't know how to do HDR, but the untreated versions are not too shabby either.

In the portrait, you get a sense of depth from the mottled shade and sun dappled over the foreground, which then leads into the strength of the clouds, which I feel is lacking in the landscape.
Hey there Tight Knot! So I gave it a whirl I hope you like them Like I said I like vibrance, contrast and saturation. I just ran them thru lightroom3 and with one of the presets tone curve- medium contrast then increased the vibrance in all of them some more than others and a bit of saturation

I couldn't really come up with a crop that I liked but I feel like there is way too much cloud in this one

I cropped it too b/c there was just way too much clouds up top it looked weird with the edit I did
