Morning Mist Over the River

Posted by

Early morning mist hangs over the Snake River as first rays of sun light up Mt. Moran in Wyoming.

Incredible scene Barabara, just wondering what a little extra warmth and contrast might do to it. Do you think it might destroy the feel of the image?

@Curly: Hey, Curly, I agree about extra warmth and contrast, but it is there in the original image. I always have trouble getting reds and pinks to show up on Aminus3. The mountain peak is actually an alpenglow pink. I once had a red barn, and it came out brown. I have to really push reds to get them to show up at all on the posts. Any suggestions?

This is the best time of the day...IMHO! You have captured it to perfection Barbara! Well done! ;-))

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks, Eric. As I mentioned to Curly, I could not get the pink to show up when I posted.

I love the image, and am also curious about what Curly may suggest.

I just love it when the Yellowstone puffs up like a dragon. It's rare. Nice catch Barbara of early morning newness and mystical feeling there.

I'm guessing now Barbara, but we will probably be returning to that question about colour space. Is your photo editor working in sRGB colour space (rather than Adobe RGB), and are you working with a calibrated monitor? If the answer to those two questions is yes then I can only suggest that you have a word with Jason and garner his thoughts, I have never really experienced a problem with AM3 "losing" colour after upload, just a loss of sharpness, and even that is understandable as compression is applied to economise on server storage space.
How does your page look on a "known calibrated monitor", any different to your own, or about the same?

Good evening Mrs. Thomas,
a poignant moment when the sun rises over snow-capped mountains. The fog perfected the overall view.
I wish you all the best and health. Dear gretings from Christel

Great wide landscape shot. I really like the way you've captured the fog above the trees. Morning is such a great time to photograph!

This is so beautiful Barbara! The fog coming through the trees almost looks like puffs of smoke coming from a train through the forest!!

What a beautiful view to enjoy first thing in the morning! Wonderful light and the fog makes the trees stand out nicely.
