Well I think I may be done with my fall series on Mount Rainier. Actually I have quite a few more from that short two and a half day trip.
I did get an amazing (for me) number of "keepers". I posted 26! It helps to have some fabulous scenery and weather. I'll be back there for the spring wildflower extravaganza and to assess the damage from recent storms...18 inches of rain in two days, with powerful winds caused extensive flood and blow down damage to the park.

Hi Evelynn,

Very nice landscape. One feels that you would have liked to be there. The shade in front is slightly distracting and could probably be cropped out.


Hello Evelynn
Great panoramic shot of Mount Rainier.
Love the way that the floor under the pines shows a red color indicating the approximation of winter.
Great composition of the slope and the mountain.
Superb colors and details.
Excellent POV and DOF.

Hey! That looks like the mountain I can see from my backyard, and it is. Beautiful shot Evelynn. :)


great job,
i hope to see this one day with my own eyes,

Hi Evelynn,

A nice compo with good colors,I like the composition,you choose a good POV and cropping works excellent


Hello Evelynn,
The beautiful summit nicely framed!
Autumn is visible in the ground only, and the fir forest provides a pleasant view...
A lovely composition, with a very good sense of depth!
Pablo -

you have a fantastic DOF on this picture. the detail in the mountain is stunning. As always I feel like I need to ask for the picure to the right, but I know that that is your style.

The only things I find a little distracting is the very deep shadows at the bottom. they just seem a touch too deep for my liking, but every screen is different and no-one else has mentioned them.

Nicely done.
TFS Emma

What a glorious shot. The mountain looks majestic, the colours are vibrant and the composition is spot on. Wonderful.



i remember this now..didnt it erupt some time ago..my aunt lived in seattle so i think i made a mental note of it..she moved eventually to aberdeen ..washington state
this is monumental and the portrait format assists..the trees point us up to this well exposed view with some cloud shadow to 'paint' in depth

Hi Evelynn,
You've got some really stunning ones in the series of Mount Rainier. The colors have just been amazing.
This is a great end to the series. The DOF is good and the details in the mountain are perfect. I do have a simular feeling about the dark part on the FG, but it isn't bothering me that much. I do feel that you might need to adjust you levels in the mountain area slightly, so that the shadows and highlights contrasts eachother a wee bit more.

Bonjour Evelynn
Une merveilleuse photo que ce Magnifique paysage avec ces belle couleurs, le cadrage avec ses sapins a l'avant plan de cette belle montagne mettre bien cette belle montagne en évidence, les détails sont tous très bons.
Bravo et merci...JP

Hello Evelynn, very nice shot. It's a very good composition and the lighting looks great. However, I would suggest having more sky and less of the dark shadows in the foreground. Lovely work.

Wow, Evelynn, this is an eye-popper! Really stunning. Amazing clarity on the mountain, and I love the fg trees. There seems to be a bit of tilt in the trees, but if they are like here, that is the wind, and the way they really are. I agree about the dark area, but I think cropping out most of the shadow would take care of that.

Excellent shot!
