    nice postcard. no - postcards usually are even advanced (sky, brightness, colors, contrast, color saturation) sorry: con

    the sky needs to be darker.
    amazing reflections and composition but i also agree about the colour sort of looks like you have drained the saturation out of the landscape.
    plus people wont say anything but the whole self proposing thing people dont like.
    i really like this shot a few minor flaws could be fixed and you could have a pro on your hands
    sorry this time contra

    This has potential, but the washed out nature of the exposure and the lack of density due to that exposure has me voting contra. Lovely in composition and elemental appeal, but not quite gallery.
  • Patrick B. Parenteau 05/31/2007 22:21

    In additon to the over exposure, I think there are too many elements in the shot, a common problem when documenting the rocky mountains. You are on the right track. contra
  • Cees Kuijs 05/31/2007 22:21

    Have to agree about the over-exposure.

    Heather, I wish to expand on something Robert touched on - the color does seem unsaturated on a computer monitor, even though the print may be perfect. Both Nikon and Canon digital SLR's often benefit from some judicious curve editing when the final product is an 8 bit JPEG image in the RGB colorspace on a computer display. Nothing to detract from the photo, which is lovely, but to perhaps explain some of the gallery voting mentality around here. Welcome, by the way!
  • Robert Riley 05/31/2007 22:21

    Could have been exceptional; but there is no depth to the colour, it looks washed out! I suggest you revisit, make the colours more saturated, maybe sharpen a bit.

    This time Contra.
