Thank you.

Actually, you could have uploaded as a modification to the earlier image, and loaded a different picture today, if you'd wanted. However, the data is very welcome. It all seems to be sensible, and the settings shouldn't cause any problems.

This is a panoramic view - am I right in thinking htat you cut off space at the top rather than the bottom? The exposure seems on the low side, and bright sky could have affected the camera's meter to do this.

Did you process this at all? This looks a bit processed, in a way I can't quite put in words. The colours look quite saturated, and there's a harshness to it that may not be entirely natural. My first thought is processing, my second is that there are camera settings that can affect contrast and so on.

This look like an amazing place to see, and experience.

I agree with dudler, it does look like its been processed a lot; theres and area in the blue sky, i the middle that looks like some sky was belended in over the as-shot sky?

Dudler has indicated how you can upload your own image right here, so if you have an original, unprocessed image of this, you can use that process to upload it as a modification, we would love to see it.

It is underexposed; many images like this are affected by the brightness of the sky and snow and will underexpose unless you use Exposure Compensation and add perhaps a +2/3 or a +1.


I loaded a mod with this done; altered white balance a little; reduced contrast a lot; reduced saturation. The foreground rocks are very soft/fuzzy, so this can mean you focused to far into the scene to maximize your depth, so the mod had that area sharpened a whole lot.


Regards

This is at least one stop underexposed.
As this is cropped down form the original (easy to tell a the aspect ratio of the image is more rectangular than images straight from the camera) if you had a lot of bright sky that would have influenced the reading and caused the camera to give less exposure than required.
It's a pity as there's some super detai to be had in those mountains.

Unless you processed it to look this way, that's the sort of thing that would help us in giving feedback.

Those foreground rocks are not sharp, and at that focal length and f/10 they should be.

As for the composition, the placement of the largest foreground rock and the progression of the hills across the frame, all very pleasing.
