My brother and I went for a hike today. At the peak, we were 1248 meters above sea level (4094.5 feet). If you're not careful up here, you will fall down - and that will be your last action. In the first shot, you see Norway's third largest glacier, "Folgefonna", which partly is placed in our municipality.

Up here, everything suddenly makes sense. I understand our municipality's geography better when being able to see things from above.

I also like the second. The first is a little too tonemapped for my taste.

Well those clouds don't look like they came out of the camera like that - clarity slider? Or a plugin like Viveza? They are good images, it's just that the clouds don't look altogether real

I disagree, but that's fine :) All editing is done in adobe raw converter. The fill light slider can make the image a little funky at times. I'm satisfied with them, for what they are :)

I don't see an issue with the clouds. They appear with the clarity that one should expect at high altitude in an area with little or no pollution.

Very nice. I wish I was able to do more mountain hiking...the views really are spectacular and it does give you a difference sense of perspective.

Beautiful stuff, Anders - I think #7 is my favorite. I also like the ones with your brother in them - especially #3, for the perspective. :)
