This is Guadalupa Mountains between El Paso TX and Carlsbad NM. As always I enjoy comments but I would especially love to hear what you think of this first one as it has some new editing techniques that I'm working on. I'll tell you what I did after I see what all you think :) This is the El Capitan Peak shooting across a salt-flat

I am no landscape photographer, so take this with a grain of salt. I like the colour and exposure, particular the sky, in the first picture. So you post process worked. But would consider cropping it more, get rid of the right third of picture, a bit from the left and the stuff below the bush that would then be bottom left corner. Second picture ok, the third makes me wonder how it had looked if you had laid down, just to get the size perspective in a bit more.

The 3rd was supposed to be a pano but i didn't lock the exposure so it did not blend the sky right. I need to see if o can adjust the exposures on the batch. The first pic i know the crop os not good. Look at the salt thru the poc and see if you spot any odities.

a couple of spots just the left of centre and bit more left. But at that size hard to pick
