[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from my recent outing to Glacier. Boy I love this place. The scale is SO large that my 18mm isn't big enough. Amazing.

PP: Shot at ISO 800, so a noice filter (Noiseware), one dust spot cloned out, a resize, frame, and slight USM.

Very beautiful picture woth wonderful composition and color.

A beautiful landscape captured perfectly.
Composition,colour,exposure and DOF are all spot on.

Hello Mike,
What a view...pfff
Neat image!

Mike ,

Great job here. Deep rich colors, love the sky in the background.
What a pieceful place.
Very Nice


Hi Mike,

A good POV of Swiftcurrent lake and of the mountains, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


This is another great shot Mike. The colors are very natural and rich. I'm tying to imagine were you were standing to get these shots. I've walked the Swiftcurrent Lake trail but this looks farther away. Were you on the road itself?

Nice work
Evelynn : )

Gorgeous landscape. Beautiful sky and a very nice pov! Postcard perfect. TFS

Hi Mike
A beautiful landscape! The mountains are just spectacular with the shadows from the clouds above. Nicely balanced in thirds. Excellent colour and detail. Well done.

Hi Mike,
I think I like this one best so far. The colors and light feel really natural. I particulary like the paly of light and shadows on the mountain base. I am still in full envy of the stunning clarity you had that day. It gave you a spectacular view.

Hello Mike -

This is a different view of Swiftcurrent Lake and the mountains that surround the lake. When I saw the thumbnail I thought the image was just a tad dark but viewing the main image I see that it is not as dark. But, I think a light brightening in the FG and along the left edge and into the shadows of Mt Grinnell would help. Otherwise, the exposure looks to be where it belongs, the DOF and sharpness are spot on the money. This park is just a wonderful place and is a favorite destination of my wife and myself. Well done!

Thank you for sharing.
