I had higher hopes for this one but see that I did overprocess a touch. No HDR. That look comes from the Fill Light I used when I processed from RAW. Hey, it did keep me at 23rd in the 2008 FSM though so I'm happy.

Thanks for the comments and votes.

Looks like a glorious place to hike. Makes me want to see the view from just over that rise!

Very nice colours and composition. To my eye, though, it looks a tad oversharpened.

like the way the trail leads the eye to the dead tree need s a touch of contrast to break the haze

Lots of impact here, and I like the perspective. I may be a touch too bright if anything, but that may only be because the last one I voted on was especailly dark.
