Hi rochellek

I can see what attracted you to the shot, it looks like incredibly imposing scenery and it must have been breathtaking to stand amongst it. I am not a spectacular landscape photographer, so hopefully someone will come along and be more helpful. Having said that I do have some thoughts. It looks to me as though you thought more about the mountains in the distance than the foreground when you composed the shot. It helps to think about your foreground as well. Lots of landscape photographers aim to take shots when the light is less harsh and the sun lower in the sky. Put simply, it means you get less extreme contrast between light and shade and can have more drama and detail in your shots.

I have done a mod for you - I have reduced the highlights in the top left and worked with the bottom right hand corner a bit. It's by no means a perfect mod, but might give you an idea of how to balance the bright and shade in your shots a little differently. I hope it helps a bit. I do hope someone with more landscape talent than me pops by also!

A beautiful image and the modification is also a good one. I do prefer the image without the foreground tarmac in the bottom right hand corner.

The mountains either side also balances the image well. Good capture.

A lovely scene, Rachel, and you have composed it well. The left-hand mountain gets a bit lost in the light clouds, but Julia has remedied that in her modification, as well as the bottom right corner, and she has also lifted the shadows on the right. The image is now much better balanced. I think you did well.
Pamela.

A nice composition. Just a touch darker and some burning in of the sky required.
