Here are different version of Dante's view posted a few days ago.
This one was shot with the 17mm TS-E @ f/8 about 20-30 minutes earlier.
Thanks for posting your comments!
All the best
Fred

Fred,
Great color and comps. Only nit I have is the bush in the first shot. Its a bit of an eye-trap for enjoying the rest of the picture.

Hi Fred,

I like the soothing nature of the Dante image.

The Saltflats are a bit rougher on my eyes. The sky and clouds seem to have a bit too much contrast applied, as seen in the intense orange and a few hotspots. The very foreground has much whiter tones than the rear half, which gets pretty dark towards the mountains (which themselves are hard to discern). I think all the saltflats should be more evenly toned, with a natural fade of light towards the distance.

Hey Fred,

Cool shots. I just got back from DV last night! I really like your Dante's Peak shot, for me the foreground bush is really sweet. With #2, I agree with Jeffrey's thoughts. I do like your composition, and you had some nice clouds there.

Thanks for the comment. I appreciate the feedback. Following Bert's comment, I toned down the foreground bush so it blends more evenly with the rest of the composition.
Jeffrey, I removed the Salt Flats image and will re-edit it following your advice. Thank you!
Jim, I can't wait to see your pictures!!!
Take care,
Fred

Hi Fred,

I like your composition. I didn't see your first post of the current photo. Your processing looks really nice in this version. Nicely done.

Fred, the rework is more pleasing, and this image is the masters example of the near-to-far concept. What a range!

Hi Fred,

That extra splash of sunset color adds a great contrast to the muted colors elsewhere.

Personally, I like the bush. Might prefer it in the lower right corner, maybe just a bit less of it. Fantastic shot regardless.

A real beauty Fred.
Agree with Jeffrey - the range of focus is fantastic
The clarity of the image is another winner

Thanks Jeffrey. Tilting the plane of focus allow us to shoot at optimal f/stop. It does not make much difference when viewing web images but it does come into play when printing.

Thanks Phil. I was pretty much in the dark. The only colors and bit of light were in the background.
