Greetings Tom. Your treatment of light on all three of these is wonderful. What I find amazing is the amount of detail you are able to preserve in the distant mountains and in the shadows. Truly remarkable.

I agree with Hank on this Tom. Great detail and light capture. The smaller boat in the foreground(looks like a toy boat) really gives the whole scene a feeling of grand scale. Nicely done.

Best regards, Tom

Thank you very much Hank and Tom. I will fess up, I used a graduated neutral density filter on these. It helps alot but I am still learning how to use it as my camera wants to compensate for it.

As always I appreciate the visits.

Well done with the grad nd Tom. Next to my polarizer it's the one item I always have with me. :) Looks like you're well on your way to mastering it.

Best regards, Tom
