Hello Richard. Beautiful work here. You know, the color palette is a very muted pastel and the tonal range is blocked up in midtones. It looks like a true rendition of what you saw. I bet the high res file is full of wonderful detail. I am also guessing that this image won't go over real well with the PNet crowd. The very things I like about it, the lack of contrast and the minimal color palette, are the things that will keep it under the radar for most (I wish I was wrong). Of course, you do know that our many of our PNet comrades like to overindulge on the saturation and contrast sliders. Even I might even say it appears moderately flat, but I can see that this morning (or evening) was hazy or humid and cut down on the contrast. If you added any contrast or saturation, then it becomes a creative influence post pro. Still nothing wrong with spiking the image if you feel the need. But going back to my original thought, I think this has many qualities as is. I believe you have rendered this just the way you wanted, a good example of true art and not an elicitation of platitudes and higher ratings. Good for you!!

Was it dusk something? My English will never get better, only worse! I saw in my vocabulary, it is dusk what I think this is, but one can never distinguish dawn and dusk on a photograph! However, this picture is excellent in any regard! I would have shown it larger though!

This shot works well without increased contrast and saturation...which makes it a beautiful natural scene.

I really like the muted tones and low contrast, it helps create the feel of quite and peacefulness in this landscape. I can sense the cool mist in the air and the sense of contentment that this capture must have left you with. Regards and Thank you for your comments on my image.

Lance, I think it was sunset if I remember, we camped over night and it was raining in the morning.
