absolutely beautiful colors and sky!

Excellent composition.

Pretty good, a touch too oversaturated and white balance also too warm for my taste but other than that good :)

Back to comment and bump: Very well balanced processing on this image. I forgot about the red rivers out west. 9

Great colours and sharp clarity. Good luck!

Beautiful although it could be a bit more 'punchy' for my liking.

Wow! This is lovely. The contrast, the clearness of the air, and the colours are spectacular. WD.

Lovely detail. The orange river is a bit wierd.

Very nicely presented!

stunning depth of colour

I like the colors created in this photo, and good perspective...6

Looks like a polarizer was used. On my monitor this looks dark but looks like a good composition. Just needs more post processing to bring out the wonder hidden in the scene. :(

Hmmmm... given the wide halo above the left side hills it strikes me that you may have used HDRI with this image. If so, you will want to go back and redo that because it appears underexposed and you will want to correct that. If not corrected in HDRI then fix it with standard editing adjustments.

Very nice. Although with the coloring it almost borders on graphically rendered, and loses a little of the "photo" quality. Not necessarily a bad thing. I like the depth.
04/18/2007 03:49:33 PM
Excellent work, 10 from me.
04/18/2007 01:49:31 PM
Beautiful, love the color!
