I took this on the morning of my sisters wedding in Colorado. I chased this one a bit and then saw another one by the mountain. After chasing the one by the mountains (which I was hoping I could make the mountains POP in the background, but it was too hazy), I noticed that this one had landed and I missed a better opportunity than this photo. But, I think this photo came out quite nice and I am Very Very Happy with it.

Dream score: 6.5
Realistic hope: 6

too bad Ill be disappointed later down the road when I check my score. Either way, Im happy with the photo.

Post: Surprised by the score of this. Either way, whatever. I achieved what I was graphically going for and am happy with it.

Reply to a comment: There was no dodging/burning on anything including the tree.

Very nicely composed and I love the pastel peach of the sky.

Looks good, just a little over processed

Some colors are a bit oversaturated imo, and there are some halos. If it weren't for those, it'd be a 10. 8 from me.

too much evidence of burning on the right side of the tree.
