I posted this once in the "pics out the airplane window" thread, and in another forum, but I'm not really getting any comments. I'd appreciate your feedback on this one.

I can post the original if it would help.

Thanks.

I think that it screams adventure!

I like that the view is from the cockpit, not just any pic though a window of a typical passenger jet.

I do really like the lighting on the mountains as well. The glass obscures the edges of the frame to make yo wonder what else is out there.

I don't know if i see this as a wall hanger in my house, but certainly in with other pictures to tell a story or part of a series to advertise a trip taken.

Pretty cool.

What location was that?

Coming back out of Denali National Park. It was a ski plane we took and landed on a glacier a few miles from the summit. It was an experience of a lifetime.

Interesting shot. If you shot in RAW then I'd suggest trying a single-frame HDR.

Huh, didn't know I could do that with just one image. What would the goal of that be?

The goal of most HDRs is to bring more detail into areas which lost detail due to over and under exposure. With a RAW image, you would have much more latitude in creating 2 or more copies with each one bringing out highlight or shadow detail, so then you do an HDR on the copies and get one new image with more detail. Some software will do it all for you in one click so you don't have to actually create the separate hi and lo images.

Is this a crop?

The image is cool as it is, but has loads of potential as well. Showing a little bit more of the cockpit, maybe?

As suggested a HDR might help with the overexposed areas. Processing the RAW might already be enough, there is enough drama in the picture as it is.

Curious to see the progress!

I am not nature photography lover per se, but damn I would love to see the view without cockpit whatsoever.
