On my last day staying at the Fox Glacier in New Zealand, the sky was somewhat better at last.
Mt. Cook and Mt. Tasman were beautifully reflected into the calm Lake Matheson with some fog around.
My hiking into the Lake Matheson daily for the past three days gave me good exercise though.
Here is my preliminary processing before finalizing in the PS.
7 vertical shots pano.
Any constructive critics are always welcome!!

--
I have just proceeded the procession through PS and its version is added. I am still looking for some critics and suggestions. Later I may just delete my preliminary version. Thanks!

Lots of tweaks you could make, but honestly I think they would make the image look less natural. You seem to have a very realistic rendition here, it works very well. I initially thought that perhaps the reflection was the same brightness as the actual scene itself, but upon more careful examination I don't think that is the case. Good job!

The more tweaks applied the busier and messier the image looks. I like it as simple and clear as I saw. I was hoping some red and pink sunrise but.. no. The reflection has more vivid and refined contrast and shapes. Thanks for your thought.

I'll bet you won't forget that morning very soon, what a beautiful image. It really looks pretty nice as is. Whether bringing out a tad more details in the black trees would help or hurt I am not sure. Nice job.

That is true. I will have a loving memory of the Lake Matheson with those beautiful Mt Cook and Mt Tasman.
I can bring the details in the black trees, maybe a little bit.. But for now, I will keep those area dark.
Please take a look at the image that I just added after PS steps.

Hey Kee,

This is really beautiful. I like the cooler version of the mountain in the second one but I like the way the trees are processed in the first. They have a bit more detail in that shot. Maybe combine both? Both look really good as is though. You captured a great moment.

Hello Jordan,

Thanks for your comments. I did work on the second version which is in PS to reveal tiny bit more details in the dark tree area. I will post it later in the day.

Great shot Kee! A real beauty.
Just bring up those shadows in the trees, maybe a couple stops.

Very nice comp Kee. Very well done!
My only suggestion would be to lift the shadows a bit more.
