Thanks for looking.

The Teton National Park is certainly a grand place for awesome images and those are great with the illumination across the peaks and I especially like the foreground forest and river as well. The log cabin is a heritage building (I think) and it is very photogenic as well, all are most enjoyable.

Great landscape shots Almazar. I especially like the light on the mountain peaks. Nice one of the photo line up too :)

Nice images, Almazar, especially the Mormon barn in photographer's context.

Precisely why I don't need the Molton Barn in my portfolio

Your first photo is the perfect explanation as to how they got their name!

Thanks for the comments. I have reprocessed the first two images and replaced the old images with the new interpretations. Here are the old ones for comparison.

Hi Almazar,

First of all; what an amazing sight this particular land is! : )

I don't know what kind of processing was done to the replaced images but they certainly are much warmer with the foreground trees more pronounced and detailed. The summits are copper due to your last changes...and I'm uncertain if this makes the look any more natural.

Had you not shared the first ones, I might have liked the newl-processed ones because they indeed make striking scenes with copper/iron-dusted mountain tops and warmer greenery with more details....
Which summit colour is more true in relation to what you saw there with the naked eye?

I think they are open to interperetation though. : ) Depends on what one might like to see on their wall...

Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz

Yildiz,

I dialed up the saturation and brightness a little bit much earlier. I have now reprocessed the pictures again to be more reflective of my memories of the scene. Thanks for the comments.

I guess the second one is much more realistic. IMHO.

Oi! stop posting these gorgeous landscapes. You are making me jealous. :lol:
IMHO landscape does not necesarily have to be 'realistic'. When we take a picture we don't want it to show what the camera saw, we want it to show what we saw, which is quite a different thing. In any case once you have chosen your moment and focal length etc and composed within that 2:3 rectangle you already have something that has the stamp of your mind upon it. I like what you have done to the images.

Wonderful photos! The Grand Tetons are so beautiful and the old, abandoned houses and barns make great foregrounds. I recall that years ago on my first trip there I read somewhere that the name Grand Tetons came from French-Canadians and the name means Big Tits. :lol:
