It was dawn and -19degrees C when I made this image of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California earlier this year. I shot several frames before finding this trio of sagebrush plants which I thought made a nice foreground.
Would welcome any comments.

Good use of the three clumps and the long shadows.

Good use of the sage - those plants form a nice line and therefore lead the eye well. Lovely mountainscape in the background. I like this as a combination.

Hello Brian, I am sure this will make a fine addition to your exhibits in Crail which I admire from time to time...the scene is very good with the low light and the imposing mountain backdrop...I would spend a little more time in cloning out what looks like your tripod shadows as the snow shades are not quite matching, and the PS bits around the centre brush would benifit from a little more time spent on them also...apart from that its a fine product from your travels and almost compares with our Rannoch moor.

Thanks for your clicks and comments folks.
Doug, nice to hear from you. What you are seeing in the image is what was there. The shadows are from the surrounding vegetation and I don't think should be cloned out. I stopped leaving my shadow in my images some time ago!
Regards,
Brian

Its the PS work Brian that I see, like a bit of cloning, but if you say you have not carried out such actions I stand to be corrected...what you appear to be touching up is not the issue, I used a tripod to illustrate the point. I admire your work and would be the first to accept your knowledge and experience as foremost in the photographic world, I never pass Crail without admiring your prints.
