Leighton - the Monticello pics have real feeling about them. The pano has had a lot of processing, no? lots of colour? I like it.

Thanks Ben. I edit all of my shots a lot, maybe too much sometimes!
Here's an example of what I mean, just taken with Nikki an hour ago. I really liked how the light was falling on the distant field but knew I'd have trouble with exposing it. So I shot it with the hopes of rescuing it in LR. The first one is how I shot it, the second after processing. I know it's a little overdone, but I like it, this is how I had it envisioned at the time.
Thanks for posting that Leighton - it's very interesting to see how other people work.
I can see why you cropped out the pile of rocks in the foreground. It all works for me - except the darkening of the mountains in the distance. The lightness, low contrast, and slightly blue tinge is how we gauge distance. I assume you darkened them to bring out the light on the field, but for me it distorts the perspective. I'd have done the opposite. Darkened the foreground hill, bought up the colours on it - that would have emphasised the lighter field in the distance - and then the mountains further off.
Thanks for the C&C Ben, I'll give your suggestion a try. That's one of the things I like about LR, it's non-destructive.
