Went to Sequoia National Park this weekend and thought I'd share some photos. Would love your honest thoughts. First attempt at photographing stars like this.

The sky images I would print, were it not for the included foreground. The sunset image suffers from lens flare and streaks in the water and should be fixed. ;)

A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

#1 and #3 are great sky shots for me. I like the silhouette -- not the lit foreground as seen in #2 and #4 -- because it is subdued and it helps with scale.

I also like #5, and I'll agree with Chauncy about needing to remove the flare. [I'd clone out the boat and the black dot in the water, too.]

Thank you for posting these. You've given me some ideas...but, I'm stuck in Ohio where I won't get your clear skies or quality landscapes to work with.


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Thanks for your advice @chauncey - I'll get to editing those and see how they look.

Thanks @cpam.pix and @147alltheway
