#6. I didn't notice the saturation really.

I liked #8, but I think that would have worked a little better as an HDR.

UPDATE: I took your guys' collective advice, and it paid off. The canoe photo placed second in the Scenic section of the competition. Thanks so much for your help! I have a chance to win the Reader's Choice Award as well, so I would really appreciate it if you visited http://www.alaskamagaz​ine.com/photocontest (external link)and voted for my photo. You can just CTRL+F "canoes" to find it. Thanks again everyone!

I think #7 has potential but I would put the color back in, Polychrome Pass gets it's name because of the colors, and crop either the big sky or about half of the foreground. I'd play with it to find out which crop works best but right now it's got too much dead space.

Being a long time zone system/view camera type, I really love good B&W but, to me, most digital B&W just looks like color with the color removed.

#6, which everyone likes, looks over-saturated and maybe a little crunchy. I'd soften the saturation a bit and back of the sharpening and see if it doesn't look more real and less exaggerated.

#1 is not bad but what you posted looks, on my screen anyway, too light and just beginning to burn out highlights. I think it could be a little darker and maybe boost the the vibrance and clarity slightly if your software will permit.

I also like the moose in Denali. You were able to get quite a few animals during a short trip. The wolf is good catch.

Don't you love Alaska? I lived there many years ago and when I took my wife, she wanted to move back!

Oops! Looks like I got to the party a little late. Sorry. I guess I should have read the whole thread before commenting.
