Seems to be a bit of a bluish cast to this shot. I'll bet I've shot this same viewpoint a hundred times, albeit with film and not digital. Still, always a nice shot.

Make a curves layer and in the master channel menu, pull the blue from the center toward the lower right and see if that doesn't help to remove the bluish-ness.

Another method is to go to filter, blur-average. Select, inverses and change the blend mode to soft light, adjust the opacity to taste.

I interpreted "It was a last light." to mean it was a bluish time of day and MTGFender feels no need to make the picture less bluish. (And it gives a strong contrast with the sunlight on Clouds Rest.)

Thanks Isaac and Chris. I intend the picture to represent a "blue hour" tone.

its interesting how each of us have different interpretations of what we see (and thank God for that :-) ). Its a lovely image, but i do find the blue too strong IMHO.

in terms of intent or not and how to fix it, i would think its more a white=balance issue and some selective saturation.

thanks for sharing - its all food for thoughts

I'm with Henrik, the blue is a bit strong for my taste. Other than that, it's a lovely image, well framed and the orange light on the far summit is just right.

A beautiful image.
I would like to say that the people who are trying to give advise about what's wrong with the image, should take a moment and just enjoy it, and stop being so critical.
I have been looking for a while and everybody has an opinion about how to make the image's that have been posted look better.
But I have yet to see where the Artist/Photographer is actually asking for anybody's advise.

Having said that. I also know that constructive criticism only make as as artist/photographers better.

But shouldn't we as Artist praise and admire someone's effort to get these shots first. Then discuss what might or might not be done to change or correct them.

Just an outside thought.  Don

Thanks Don and Francois. I appreciate both of your comments.
It seems to me the images you post to LuLa are pretty much as you wish them to be, it doesn't seem to me that you are looking for advice, so if you don't mind the curiousity - Do you consider this another place to share your photos, another show case? Or?

Or to put it another way Pramote, do you believe that a forum explicitly intended for the discussion of technical and aesthetic issues related to landscape and nature photography is really an appropriate forum to use as a personal gallery?

I think the comments like these make me a better photographer no matter what I agree or disagree.
In addition, viewing other photographer's works is an inspirational experience to me and I really enjoy it.

Sure - you know what you think about your photos, but you need to see how other people react to those photos.

Hi Keith
Surely that is what is happening here. Pramote posted the picture. People have made comments about the technical and aesthetic aspect of the images bar Isaac's usual tangents about others peoples comments!  Pramote also responded to the comments made about the technical and aesthetic aspect of the images.


Or to put it another way Pramote, do you believe that a forum explicitly intended for the discussion of technical and aesthetic issues related to landscape and nature photography is really an appropriate forum to use as a personal gallery?

Where in your fantasy world do you see that Pramote has any issue about any comments made about his photos?
