Welcome to TrekNature most importantly. Enjoy your stay on the site while posting your photos and commenting others'.
Your starting landscape's nice, but there's a handful of things on it I'd like to see somehow else (this is just my personal opinion). First of all the photo has an overdose of contrast and too deep shadows. Secondly: the horizon's tilting to right. Thirdly: I'm not sure if it was intentional but there's a heavy vignette-alike effect on the edges of the pic. No. 4.: the watermark is a bit pointless.
I tried to show my ideas about how to improve the photo in the workshop - please see the steps of editing there.
Well, I'm looking forward to see more nature shots of you here on TN, because your website's really great. Best regards from Hungary (Central Europe), László

Hello Alice, and welcome to TN.
A beautifully shown image showing the natural grassland and snowcapped mountains from this part of Nevada. Colors are well saturated and I really like the overall composition. Excellent exposure and great DOF. Hope to see more of your work in the future.

A well thought out landscape image with great depth and many different layers with gorgeous light. Great start here on TrekNature Alice, welcome and hope to see more. You work in the dangerous business of Wedding Photography, I think shooting bears is much safer.
