What can I say about this shot, its gorgeous.

While it is not the most original shot ever, it does stand out as a classic mountain landscape shot that is well executed.

The landscape itself is breathtaking and the composition is very well done, with some nice foreground interest leading up to the peak lit by the sunset.

The colors are all very nice, especially with the lighting on the mountainside as well as the flowers up front.

The non-standard frame size also works very well in this shot.

If I have any critique, I think the technique used to equalize the dynamic range could be toned back (I am actually having a hard time telling how it was done, filters, frame blending, hdr) Of course however it is done is well executed, the only issue with that is that the brightness levels of the foreground seem to overtake the background, which feels slightly unnatural. In addition, it seems as if some detail might be lost in the sky. But these are minor issues that do not detract much if at all from the overall image.
What do you think?

I think this would balance better for me as a vertical cropped from the left of frame :)

the slope of the mountain on the left of this image.. i live on the other side of that.. in Lake Louise. This is literally a 5 minute drive away. I love living here.

oh make sure you see Lac Beauvert and Pyramid lake
also Medicine Lake and Maligne Lake and there are many more
but those are the ones I went to and loved them all, only Maligne lake
I did not take the boat tour, maybe next time, I just found it expensive also.
We really enjoyed going up Whistler Mountain in Jasper, the only thing
is we should of gone earlier in the day, Morning would of been better
then we would of had lots of time to explore more and there is a restaurant
up top, pretty cool.
Bow lake is it Bow Lake Valley or what is the official name..

the bow valley parkway is the best drive. and bow lake itself is pretty too.. about 30 minutes away from me tho.. so i dont go as often as id like.
I have more of te places you've listed already on my to see list, except Lac Beauvert and i shall add it.. thanx..:)

Have you seen my gallery, if you look in folder on left at the bottom were it says
trip the the edge of the rockies, you can see it in there... and by the end of the week or next week
I will post Bow lake ( I did have a little badluck with that shot cause I had fooled around with my setting
the night before and forgot to reset so i was a bit dissapointed with them but they are still okay
for someone who has not been there .....and i shot everything on auto , I am just learning now about
the aperture and all that stuff but i did not want to mess up my photos on a trip where who knows when i would go back
so next year should be better! and I might take phots more like I should with a DSLR :rofl:
Sorry i just realized I am writing all this under your photo Please hide the comment after :lol:
