I struggled with this scene. I was captivated by the mist draping over the trees, but to see it, I had to zoom in, which cost me the context of the surrounding landscape.
FRISCO — For all the pictures I post, there are many more that nobody ever sees except me — thousands, to be sure. Some of the images are not where I want them to be technically, in terms of exposure, grain or tone, while others are only partially successful compositions. In some cases, the images just don’t live up to the expectation I had when I snapped the shutter. But they all contribute to my continuing education as a photographer, and when I scroll back through my archives I’m glad they’re there.
The clouds were stunning, the glow on the snow was magical and while I got a couple of good images out of this sunset, others — like this one — were not quite “complete.
The sky is awesome, but the foreground is just a bit dark.
Dark foreground, and I don’t like the way the clouds are cut off on the right edge of the image.
This sky is incredible, but almost looks superimposed over the shadowed blue foreground.
The lighting on this morning was phenomenal and ended up with a good batch of images, but not every frame is a masterful composition, to say the least.
The grainy frost crystals in the foreground are sharp in this Snake River image, but the snow on he left was simply too bright to register properly.
