I was digging through my archives.

Thoughts?

If you think this web version is sharp, you should see the 40x50. ;o)

It wouldn't be so big if they would let you put larger than 640px in your portfolio. ;o)

...also added the link to the original color version.

Thoughts?

Like the shot a lot!! Nice Ansel Adams style imagery, probably taken with a polarizer on. I'm a HUGE fan of this style B&W. Like the tonal range.

Looks a tad overly dark on my monitor which I recently calibrated so might be "real" depending on the effect you are after. There appears to be some banding toward the lower part of the sky but that just might be an artifact of making it a web image. I experience banding on my prints so notice it.

There is a bit too much shadow in the foreground for my taste. If it were my image I would apply some burning (Not necessarily using the burn tool) to the log in the forground and rocks sticking out of the water for added foreground interest. I'd consider a little more burning in of the trees for added luminescence.

Overall a really nice shot I'd be proud to have taken!

Surely you mean "dodging", not burning?

here's an interesting thing; note how different the thumbnails look in the previous two posts, just because of the difference of the site's BG tone on alternating posts...

I use an eye-one pro calibrator. I think I need to increase the luminosity a little to brighten things up.

Thanks for all the great help!

Brent,

Always intrigued by your work. A bit intimidated by your skill, however relish the thought of shooting with you one of these days. Always appreciate your insight and help. Will definately give you a shout, if and when I'm in your area. Its been on my "to do" list since Texas.

Visitors are always welcome. Love to take out of towners shooting. And riding a bike through Rocky Mountain National Park seems like something that should be real high on your "to do" list. ;o)
