    What do you think?
    (I shouldn't have used f/5.6, there was no need for it. I don't know how that happened, most of the shots were on aperture priority at f/8 or f/16, I must have bumped it.)

    Tori, great job. I really love this shot. Very good compostion, I don't think cropping the sky would make it better than this. I agree with the others that the colours look great.
    I don't think using f/5.6 was that bad a choice here. At 18mm the depth of field is probably enough at that apperture anyway.

    I think you could use control points on the cloud and mountains to avoid the blending of the mountains and the sky. You could darken the clouds to a light shade of grey while keeping the mountains white. Since they are almost the same colour, it may help to combine control points with the selection tools (so use the paint tool while the control point is selected).

    Fiasco, very nice picture. I really like the post processing.

    Ok guys, thanks for the comments. In the original, the clouds weren't so white, maybe I'll try a different edit to keep them distinct. I didn't use any filters or CPL in this shot, I didn't even think about that but it's a good idea. What do you think of this square crop? I've never done a square crop before. Wait, no, I think I like the 8x10 crop best of all, it keeps more of the blue sky. What do you think?

    Excellent shot, and fantastic composition. Very nice shot.

    about the aperture...I was taking landscape shots in bright sunlight (in Portugal) at Iso 640. I was furious when I found out!!

    Tori, I think I still like the first one (2x3?) best. I think the portrait orientation works great for this picture. I like it, how the road leads your eyes to the tunnel and mountains and that the horizon is on the upper third of the image. On the 8x10 you have cropped a bit of the road which reduces the depth in my opinion.

    Another crop option is to create an 8x10 but then instead of cropping the road you crop the sky. On the other hand, I rather like the branches on the left...
    Deciding the crop is always a difficult choice .

    Nice picture, I like the subtlety of the colours. Good example of what old AI-s glass is still capable of. Ain't old glass great?

    Twism, nice picture. Great use of partial black and white.

    A visit to Moon in the Pond farm today brought me up close with some of their baby goats. Quite cute!
