Sempaidavid- Nice shots. I also went there lat Mon. looking for fall color. Just in time too. I guess we both beat the latest storm.

Kirby, those are great. I wish that I had had more time. We took the old trail to mirror lake and got really tired carrying all the gear. Next time I'll make sure that I'm in shape. We bought a yearly pass, so we'll be up there a lot this year.

The last is the best for me although just because you took it in a rectangular format does not mean it is the best format to show it.

This image for me is best as a square, I think that in the rectangular format there is a lot of uninteresting and bland space in the foreground! I will remove my crop if you wish?

Nice, I went there today too! Took the family :D (we also have a pass - live over in Sonora). I hope to get up there quite a bit this winter...

Some nice shots here. I agree with cropping out the foreground on that shot.

First one looks a bit soft. The second is an excellent composition with a strong foreground element that doesn't overpower the pic, also has some nice colors and detail, but seems a little bit underexposed. The trees on the right could use a bit of dodging to pull out some detail. A few adjustments, and this one can be a really nice image. I agree with an earlier recommendation to crop the third pic...too many distracting footprints/lack of interest in the foreground...the crop is a much improved version.

Question: Why do others feel the need to post their pics in someone else's thread, instead of starting their own? Just curious, that's all...
