One of those shots that just worked out. He also did a great job staying really still for the 25 second exposure. Lol
Shot from High Rock Lookout in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

Really nice but I would have liked to see it as more of a portrait of him with the great background instead of "he needed to check Facebook incredible scenery be dammed".

Appreciate the feedback, Bob. I completely get your thoughts here. This was more of a happenstance then a planned picture.
The whole story of this is, I took him camping for his Bachelor get-a-way and we just got done taking one of us together facing towards the mountain enjoying the incredible scenery. Neither one of us had any sort of service, until we got out to that rock. He got a text from his bride to be asking if we arrived safely. So He stayed up there for a minuet after we took our picture facing the mountain, to tell her we made it safe and sound. The glow lit up his face so I told him to freeze. :-)

With this in mind, the shot is even better.

One suggestion.... tighter crop perhaps. The area over his shoulder is dark and isn't really needed in the comp. Perhaps crop in from Right upper corner over and down a bit. There is not much detail in the sky there that you will miss either. Care to try and repost?

Great shot. Really love this image.

Seeing as it's a 1DX my thoughts would be why ISO 100? I would have belted this out at ISO 3200, 6400 or 12800 as the 1DX is designed for high ISO use?

Irrespective of my comments, I'd love this in my portfolio!!!

Thanks for the suggestion, Ted. It'll be a while before I can, but I'll play with it after work tonight.
Unless you want to give it a go, you're free to do so. :-)

Hahaha. Pretty much nailed it. Said hey, will you stay there for a min so I can take another one? He said sure and that's when I told him not to move for 25 seconds.. He just looked at me with that "really" face. Lol. Thanks, Joe.

Thanks, LincsRp. Reason for the longer exposure was to get the movement in the clouds. IMHO, it made the picture a little more unique. 8-)
