I appreciate all the input, Maverick, it is very helpful. I think this year was the first year that I shot everything manually exposed, in raw format, not just jpeg. And I have worked on understanding depth of field, lenses, hyperfocal distance, white balance, iso, adobe, high contrast scenery, and camera mechanics. The more I learn from my mistakes, and the less I have to think about the mechanics, I hope the creative develops more this year. You can't beat the subject matter! (High Sierra)

One more quick thing, simplicity! To many people try to including everything
into their shots, lake, mountain, tree, rock, and anything else which takes your
viewers focus away from the main subject matter. Even small rock or bushes that
creep into the frame from the side can be distracting, small reflecting surfaces
can create distractions that take viewers attention away from the main focal point.
Okay, let me stop or I will keep going and going like the energizer bunny. :-# :D

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
