Hi from the C Club

Fabulous title you have there fits teh shot very well.

I think a little more of a crop at the bottom would have made the water pop out a bit more, you have some fabulous cuvey lines going on there and would have been nice to see then some more. You do have some grain going on here and some tight halos around the mountain tops.

In post processing, a tip that I worked out is that before you turn it into black and white, is to play around with the saturations, selective colours , curves and brightness contrast. then turn it into black and white, you will be amazed at what a difference it makes to your details.

I bet this is an amazing place to see

Thanks for all the nice comments on my first free study. The light that day was very grey with dust blowing from the nearby glacierbed causing this mist. I found it suited the picture better to reduce the colour still than to pop it up.So after levels and cropping, I faded saturation 50% in h/s, added some tone in coloe balance and tried to find texture in both sky and mountainside with curves and in s/h.

Very nice and I like the rich tones here. It appears there are some sharpening halos around the hills.
