Early rise this morning..... it was very stormy up there!!
If you have any advice please do pass it on...
Thanks for taking a closer look
amazing scenery and timing
Beautiful colours. Well done for being there at the right moment - the unstated secret of landscape photography.
My comment on your portfolio to date (and I hope it's constructive) is that you seem to be getting less sharpness than I'd expect from a fine camera and what's probably a decent lens.
First suspect is camera movement, even if you're using a tripod - there are a lot that are not as good as they claim, and allow wobbling. I suggest using the delayed action timer or a cable release.
Use the tripod as little extended as possible, and weight it down with your camera bag, or stones, which should (just) touch the ground, so that wind doesn't make your stabilisation efforts add to the vibration.
Second possibility is that the focus is off: use manual focus, and the hyperfocal distance (worth looking up, and understanding well!)
Finally, lenses are at their best at medium apertures: stopping right down gives best depth of field, but limits sharpness. With a shot like this, hyperfocal focussing, and a wideangle setting as you've used, I'd guess that f/11 would give perfectly good D-o-F, and allow the lens to give of its best.
