    Awesome photo. There are so many lines criss-crossing that it would be easy for the photo to feel confused and crowded, but it doesn't, because your crop creates a nice set of triangles in the composition that keep the eye from getting totally confused. The people walking along the pathway also help bring order to the otherwise seeming chaos. Great shot.

    Nice shot Paul. This spot (had no idea it was known as Smuts Valley) is one of my favorites in Kananaskis. I can't believe it's not more popular with photographers. Lovely spot.

    It seems it's almost obligatory to see moose here. I saw two last time I was here. I would have loved a telephoto shot of the mountains in the distance and the fire in the sky (and perhaps a moose or two). But this is also lovely.

    Hi Kasia,
    This strong image is wonderful as the person appears walking upon water in a canal. The high angle, exposure, textures, and the curve of the road are all perfect for this shot.
    Excellent...

    Hi Kasi,
    What I love in this image is the lighting from behind the trees and the beautiful browns and golds the light allows to infuse into the scene. The simplicity of nature's forms and textures are beautifully captured through your lens and in your vision of this scene.

    Going through your images I have to ask, what do you do for a living? Your image of North Korea was a shock as that was the first image I have seen of North Korea on the site.

    I wanted to do this hike on Canada Day at sunrise, but my wife didn't want me going solo in an area known for grizzlies, so I settled for Wedge Pond (a great consolation prize--pictures to follow in the next few days).

    Lovely shot. I've seen lots of pictures of this vantage point, but your sunrise view is one of the finest. You're a hard worker, and it shows in your photography. Beautiful shot.

    I always find it funny when I see articles about fall colors around the country. Utah is never mentioned. But I've been to New England and Arkansas in the fall, among other places, and I didn't find their colors to be any more brilliant than the best that Utah has to offer. And Utah has red rock, mountains, canyons--a better variety of backgrounds than you'll find in any state other than California. It's a fall color hidden gem.

    I like this shot here. The cottonwoods are lovely against those beautiful hills.

    Hello Omid,
    The Temple is beautiful indeed. The craftsmanship that it takes to place the colorful tiles together to tell a story is a remarkable work of art.
    Very crisp and bright image,
    Well Done...

    Hi Jerry:

    Welcome to TE. I hadn't heard of this spot before. It looks like with the growth of the trees at the Snake River Overlook, this is a far superior choice. Love the soft light and the bluish-green of the valley. Nice work.

    Hello Omid,
    I agree, may there be peace and happiness spread across the world!
    I have lived in Europe for many years in the past, and I have always been fascinated by the earliest of castles and their significance to the peoples of the regions that once stood.
    I ask you; "What was this castle's main purpose, and when was it built?"
    I love the angle you chose here with the long, sweeping wall. Once, I imagine it was a grand palace where fortunes were traded and made.
    Well taken,
    Thank you,
    Steve

    Hello Ray,
    I like the overall scene as it shares of the terra quite well, and all the temperatures of the the hues are great. Just how wide is the Rio Grande anyway? to my knowledge, I have never read how wide and how deep the river is for a waterway in the high desert...
    Nice scene...

    Hi Caleb:

    I like the different take on the Banff Springs. This is an angle I hadn't seen before. I'll have to try to find it when I'm in Banff next.

    A general comment about most of your shots--they appear very soft. I suspect it's because they're being resized but not sharpened? I always sharpen my photos after I resize them to make sure the compression doesn't damage the image quality. I don't know if you have Photoshop or Lightroom, but I'd recommend either. If Photoshop is too expensive, Photoshop Elements is quite cheap and does most of what I use Photoshop for.

    I hope you were in the car (or had a VERY long lens)? Nice composition, and I particularly like that the bear is looking right at you. Not a huge fan of how much the bear's face has been lightened--it appears unnatural. But great capture overall.
