Some landscapes from Alaska

These are some shots from my Alaska trip. The first three are on Glacier bay. The last one is on a train from Whitter to Danali state park and shows a low tide from one of the many bays.

Re: Some landscapes from Alaska

Lovely set, fav is No4 I would however be tempted to crop the bottom to take out the beach which is distracting (to me anyway).

I agree with Neil. Cropping like he suggests also bring the water channels into play as leading lines and really improves the composition. Great shot!

Thanks for the replies. I'll try a crop and see how it turns out. It was a hard shot on a moving train that only gave views between trees every now and then.

I love the pale blues in the glaciers, such a contrast from the "dirty" brown on the same part of the glacier. It must be great to be able to see something like that for real.

Re: Some landscapes from Alaska

I did a straight crop to drop the stones and thought it lost a little of the impact, so I went a little bigger and cloned out the stone. I do like the image better without that distraction.

Ha! I agree. Without the stones it looks a whole lot better, nice cloning job! A fantastic image, especially in view of the fact that it was shot from a moving train,
