I need to start posting more photos in this forum! I come here a lot for information but then never think to share.
I really like how this came out. I think Im getting closer to seeing in the photo what Im seeing in my mind when I take it....

Nicely done. Good composition, the stream leads you through the rocks to the smokey trees which returns you back down the left side to start over. It would have been tempting to jack up the saturation and contrast to give it more zing, but that would have defeated your purpose.

Thanks Jon!

Yes, my cursor was hovering excitedly over the "vibrance" slider but I managed to restrain myself! I have a history of being a saturation-holic. Once I start its hard for me to stop when Ive had enough....

Hi Lmilosh. Thank you very much!

The stream is the one that runs along 71/441 some indeterminate distance south of the Sugarlands visitor center. We had already put in a long day hiking and sightseeing, but there was a really cool fog/mist hovering over the water and having already passed by a number of photo-ops I finally pulled over and spent some time exploring.
