Fantastic gallery! Aren't Yellowstone/Grand Teton stunning?! Even more so I see during autumn.

HDR processing is a little strong on some of them for my taste - I mostly noticed it in the grass/trees. Looks like a high pass that is a little TOO sharp. Yeah, I said it. But they look spectacular nonetheless.

Great work! Must have been an amazing trip!

EDIT: 32 and 40 are absolutely breath-taking.

Thanks folks for all the comments. Jon, actually the HDR was only one part.. I use Topaz detail, Viveza, etc to get the look as you see it...so the result is not over processed HDR but a combination of plug ins... just trying to be creative. :D

Your Tiger gallery is AMAZING!

Thanks, I spend around 50 hrs with those cubs (all total) and I still have some more to add to that gallery but I am proud of it. Alot of work went into it as they were growing up fast and I didnt have a lot of time to capture them as "being little"...

WOW! Those are AMAZING, I wish I could take pictures half that good, makes me want to run out with my D40 and take some pictures!

Thank you for sharing!

I'm at a loss for words, which does say quite a bit considering that I'm from Norway for one and have seen quite a few spectacular sights in my day. Some of these pictures really are up at the top with places like the summit of Mount Le Caron in France, where you can see all of the Alps.

Beautiful. Also, I'd like some of them in larger formats for dual screen desktop use, if that's possible. :)

Thanks again folks for your comments. I am headed to the UP of Michigan for Fall Colors this weekend and the Smoky Mountain the end of October, so plenty of photography coming up!

Oh that's pretty cool! Don't get me wrong - they're phenomenal. I'll have to look into getting a few of those plugins. Were these processed in Aperture or PS? I don't photograph much (no DSLR :( ... so if you're looking to get rid of old-but-still-nice equipment :rolleyes: ) but when I get a chance to steal my girlfriend's, I post-process in PS. Don't have too many plugins now, but I've always meant to research for some good ones...maybe spend a little money on some really nice ones. :)
