I spent some time in Crested Butte over the last three weeks, and had some absolutely spectacular conditions. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Very nice work!
I like #3's composition, wish the branches in front of the wheel wasn't there :).
My two cents

Interesting, they don't look over-exposed on any of my monitors and/or screens.

The last two are my favorite. I would be too tired from the biking to competently take pictures!

Wonderful set! ...but I agree with manlou. Only #4 bothers me. I think a slight bump in contrast/drop of highlights would do wonders. Looks like an amazing time.

Mine either.

I like picture 5.

exposure looks good here too. I really like # 2 and 4, mainly for great creative composition. Interestingly, I think composition is what hurts #5 which could be the best of the bunch with the right crop imo.

Very nice, and no issues with exposure from here. I'll be signing up for one of your trips soon, I hope.

I'm guessing you'd take out the foreground aspen on the right? I struggled with that, but I ended up keeping it in since it gives the image a little more depth.

LemonLime: sounds good to me! Shoot me a PM if you ever have any questions!
