[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This must be one of the most beautiful views in the Pacific Northwest. We were visiting Mt. Rainier National Park.

Critiques [Translate]

Hi William,
I really liked the area around Mt. Rainier and the mountain it self as well. You gave us a pretty good impression of the area. Your POV is good, wthe valley taking viewer into the distance.
Some recommendations: Try using a polarizer filter or a grad ND filter so that you can balance the exposure. Most of the time the exposure of the ground is OK but you will see that the sky turned out white. With one of those filters you will het a blue sky and also better color in the snow on the summit. You can fix this later with PP work, but it best to do it in the camera. Your photo could also use some contrast in the b/g and m/g and USM to take a way the digital haze.

Anyway, a great start and I hope to see more of this beautiful area.

One more thing. I see you have uploaded many photos and have received some critique, but never given any critique. If you want more visitors, it is best to start giving critique because people will see and return the favor. Also, you can learn from others photos and by giving critique and asking questions you will learn even more.

Hi William,

Neik has given you some good advice and I agree with his critique. It is only through writing critiques that people begin to learn you name and look for your pictures. If you are primarily a landscape photographer and would like to see mostly those rather than insects, animals and flowers you can click on "Landscapes" right up there under your name on this page. There aren't very many of us landscapers so it is easier to find us that way.

Thanks for sharing and welcome to TrekNature
