Hi,

in my continuous quest to improve my landscape photography, I received some good advice from many of you Camera Labs co-posters. I've tried to put as much of the advice to good use and here I am trying again..lol.

Any and all comments and critique is highly appreciated. I really need to improve..lol.

This one doesn't follow the "rule of thirds". I was attracted by how it was naturally framed top & bottom. Toyed with cropping the bottom, but I didn't want to lose the buildings bottom left. No crop.

ISO200, F6.3, 1/640sec, 0.7 exposure bias, 92mm

This one observes the rule of thirds a little better.

ISO200, F6.3, 1/640sec, 0.7 exposure bias, 200mm

Either way, it sure was a pretty sight to behold - very majestic.

Cheers :-)

I like them both, Lah, just a little humbling, you can see the majesty of the scenery..very well captured...of the two, I like the first one better...the tumble of the clouds...looking a little lofty...and I like the scene below...gives an idea of how high up you really are...

Hi patty and hower,

thank you for the kind words :-) If nothing else, there's lotsa mountains around Vancouver..lol. On a very clear day - if you're on the water, you can even see Mount Rainier in the distance (or at least I think it's Mt. Rainier out there in the distance to the south..lol).

One day when I win the big Lotto..lol.. I want to get the Canon 1DMarkIIIs or whatever is the top-model then and the most rock-solid lava-rock enforced Manfrotto tripod and the mother of all lenses and spend a month only shooting mountains. They are so great and I love being in the mountains.

Today I can still kick myself for not having had a decent camera with me the six or seven times I've been in the European Alps...wow..humbling indeed.

Cheers :-)
