A couple of really nice shots. I like the interplay of the red/green/blue colors in them. The top shot is showing some unevenness to the blue sky in the upper left which a little PS work could easily fix.

Lovely shots, both.

I'd leave the sky as is; it's just natural blue sky poking through the clouds... why screw with it?

It's just personal preference. But to my eye it doesn't look quite natural as the blue is in a perfect semicircle that is also overlying and bisecting the clouds, perhaps from a polarizer(?).

Didn't use a filter on camera, and the originals are almost blown out in the sky. Had to do a bit to them in post to get the details back on those clouds. Thought for a moment about 'adjusting' the blue left corner, but I just decided to leave it as is...maybe later I'll go back and do a 'retouch' and see if I like it?


Thanks for the comments and suggests!

Yeah, you never know. And as you say, personal preference. To me it looks like multiple cloud layers, and the only layer in that corner is pretty thin.

All this, when the OP hasn't asked for critique. :oops:

Sorry

Critiques are most welcome....always. I can't learn what I don't know about.

Very nice! I particularly like the first one and wonder if you could tell me the focal length and lens you used. I am planning to be there this fall and would like to have the right lens. Thank you very much for any info.

SDB777 - The first image is quite nice. The patch of blue in the corner is just fine. If anything, it draws your eyes to that important side of the image and I would leave it alone. The perspective and composition in the second image is very, very interesting, but the power lines are bothersome. Overall, great job.
