[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all,

this pic was taken at Cerro Krunde (Castor ski resort) at an attitude of 1600mts over sea level. That valley (Tierra Mayor Valley) runs from west to east; the pink cloud at the back is the East (ski slopes run mostly south).

Ive used a sunset filter to increase the tone of the pink cloud.

hello Brenda,
thank you for a such beautiful picture of landscape shearing with us. good composition and great DoF.
best wishes,

Hi Brenda,
A lovely photo with a wonderful view. A little soft in details and under exposed. With snow, the camera tend to under expose the photo as it wants to try to make the majority of the photo a mid tone grey. You therefore have the over expose the photo to compensate the action of the camera. If you can't do it in camera, try to adjust it in your post processing by for example adjusting the levels, or exposure.
I am not sure what you mean with a sunset filter. Is this a colored filter you screw onto your camera, or a filter in your PP software? If the first, I would recommend to leave it and just use the power of the software to saturate and increase colors.
and last, the composition. Try to avoid placing your horizon and subject on the center. Study the rule of thirds and live by it. For this one, try to crop almost all sky out of the photo. Or simply scroll down until the top of the window almost touches the mountains.

Hi Brenda,
another beautiful photo of mountains with snow. Beautiful point of view. Great composition.
Thanks for sharing,
