It's almost as if you could walk to them, but they're actually around 50 km. away. Lovely clear day with a few overhanging clouds. I'm not satisfied with the exposure: I wished the far away points were sharper. Shot at f9.9 and 1/400th, 105 mm. Perhaps a tripod?

The exposure isn't bad. Just needs that blue hue dampened a little I reckon. You could sharpen those mountain selectively using layers and layer masks.

Nice shot.

I find a polarizer helps a lot to define moutaintops and bring them out of the mist.

Nice...I like ti when they seem that close...I always try to look for Banded Peak!
Where'd you take this one? :)

South edge of Tsuu T'ina reserve off 37th Street South in a farmer's field. Favorite spot of mine, but there is often haze and fog.
