    Would love to hear others opinion in these these two images. Am I over-processing it?

    Personally I think the second is heavy handed ...

    The second has impact; the very black shadows really make the mountain very dramatic. The first image is much more realistic looking. If I was putting a big print up in an office lobby, I'd go with the second image. The first is better in a home where you're going to spend some time admiring it.

    I think the first one has great potential, with some dodge and burns on the rocks and trees to create a feel of depth and then add some highlight to the clouds, which are kind of flat IMHO

    Will play around with it. I guess if it looks like a beach, I went too far :)
