    Once again, any and all critique welcome.

    I took this in 2015 and it's appeared in an internationally know magazine, in an article about travel to the Denver area. In my past critique sessions I realized that the title does, in fact, steer people as to what to expect from the image. My original title didn't mention that it's urban. Back then, I thought that the office buildings made that clear. Is my new title redundant?

    I did reprocess this 2015 image with the 2019 version of my software, DxO PhotoLab. I tightened the crop, although the magazine printed it pretty much as in my original, but that doesn't matter now, since I think this is even stronger than the published image.
  2. A very good image, well balanced, interesting and pleasing to the eye. Great natural colours which help to emphasise the three layers on view, background, middle and foreground. The choice of a title is a very personal one, perhaps a shorter one may help ? one suggestion is "Looking towards Mount Evans" and let the viewer find the details on show. BR Ken.

  3. Thanks Ken. My original title was "Paddling Towards Mount Evans". That didn't keep it from selling. ;-)
