low sun on the hump

Sunrise highlights valley fog, bathing the peak of Camel's Hump with an early morning glow.

It's a very nice photo. I'd suggest lowering the exposure of the sky a little

Alan - great image - fantastic tones.

Being ultra-critical, I somehow would like to see the full trees in the foreground. I know that would ruin the crop.

It is great image the way it is.

Thanks Roger. I have been toying with the amount of base to include in the crop so it’s good you point that out.
I plan to review and will include a little more if it feels right.
Thanks for the confirmation.

Hey Roger, see the updated image.I think that is an improvement without adding too much weight at the bottom.

Just a little too much weight, IMHO, Alan!

Alan Brown's picture

Yeah Chris, that was always my concern....

I like the new crop and balance at the bottom. Chris has a point - I would bring the foreground a tiny bit. It is was of those things one would not notice unless we had seen the first image - but we can not unsee it. :-)

It's peachy! 🍑 Beautiful color and so serene in the way the fog envelopes the hillside.

Fine image, Alan! Very calm and airy. I think the second crop is significantly better. The trees look better anchored, but the darkness does take away a little of that airiness. I'd go in between. I can see why you toyed around! It makes quite a difference.

Thanks Chris. I agree that there is a fine balance (and why I struggled from the beginning) the weight at the bottom always bothered me.
I'll likely follow your suggestion and compromise between the two posted crops.

This is driving me crazy! I'm still vacillating about where I'd crop to optimise it.

Really nice soothing image, the tones, beautiful. I like the added, pinch, of extra trees placed on the bottom.
