Very nice, Pramote. I wonder if a bit less of the rather featureless clouds might not be a good idea (I'm trying to avoid the c-word).

I like it as it is but it's true that the cloudy sky is not spectacular!

I like the structure in the sky. You could emphasize what is there by giving it a haircut (...just a little off the top).

I daresay the falls are now bright enough for Terry McDonald :-)

Are they perhaps too bright? With that high-contrast edge I'm finding it a challenge to keep my eyes on anything but the very impressive falls.

As I mentioned in another thread recently, the problem with Yosemite in general is that it is a drab, grey featureless place. When you look at some of the "classic" photographs taken there - such as Adams's "Clearing Winter Storm", taken from a similar viewpoint to yours - the drama in the image comes almost entirely from the weather and clouds. If you do a Google Images search for Yosemite Tunnel View or, indeed, just Yosemite, you will find 99 drab images for every one spectacular one.

Catch the valley in the right conditions and you can get a great photograph. But, 19 days out of 20...........

Technically a fine photograph and would pass muster if only it weren't of a place photographers are already intimately aware of.

Yeah... maybe, as Scott suggested, a 'little off the top'.

Quote
"Even the most over-used sources (such as sunsets, or, in this show, the vistas of Canyon de Chelly and Yosemite) can be rendered startlingly new by a photographer with a different mental set and a refreshing perspective. ... Nevertheless, in the course of looking at photographs for this exhibition, I would come across the same images again and again, seeing especially in the work of young photographers not only the same locations but also the same angles, as if the photographers had never seen earlier works, as if they felt that the stunning quality of the image were enough to make an impressive photograph, regardless of what had been done before. It became clear to me that the field of landscape photography today had moved beyond first impressions, that the greatness of individual photographs was not dependent on the greatness of the site itself but on the photographer's vision of it."

Robert Glenn Ketchum in American Photographs and The National Parks 1981, p141

Hmmm, maybe.

It certainly is a much warmer and wetter year than last year.  You just needed a colder storm and more time.  I waited four days as the storm moved in and out to get this one.  I also got a few more that trip.  But it snowed four feet, but it was amazing to watch.  Tim
