Hello once again!

This time I have two shots from my favorite place, the Dolomites, from the workshop with Erin and Ted about a year ago. Would love to hear what you think!

Hey Mostafa! I just posted some of my Dolomite photos for critique so thought I'd throw my thoughts in on yours as well! I was in this same area as where you took these photos and I gotta say, you killed it man! The compositions are both so good and I can't really think of anything I would change with them. In the first photo, asides from the awesome light and color, I really like how the smaller peak in the background serves as a contrast to the more prominent peak in the foreground. The haziness and low clouds surrounding the background peak do a nice job in balancing out the grandeur and radiance of the front peak. In the second photo, I particularly like the foreground line that runs parallel to the Milky Way and enhances the symmetry of the photo already present in the mountains. Not only do the photos display beautiful light but their compositions do a great job in tying the scene together. If there's anything I would change in the processing, and this is just personal preference, I may bring out the shadow detail a little bit in both shots so that they're not quite as black in some areas. In the Milky Way photo, I may back off the vignette a tiny bit in the sky and also shift the light on the foreground a little more towards purple to more closely match the color in the sky. Again, those are just little things I noticed but I really enjoy both of the photos! Also super jealous of the light (and lack of clouds at night) you got there lol 😉

Thanks a lot for your feedback! Much appreciated. I'll take into consideration your processing tips 🙂
