    Very nice images!

    Although, I'm thinking a bump in contrast might improve the image? The images look like there's a haze over it, and the third one is a tad dark compared to the other two. (I actually downloaded the images and made some adjustments to my taste, and saw how really good they are. :smile: )

    Yes, beautiful images. I agree, a little bump in contrast would clear them up a little.

    Nice images! Like what others said, bump up the contrast a bit and the haze will probably disappear. For the 3rd photo, it is underexposed, so you might want to brighten it up a little also...

    Not a huge fan of landscape photography for the most part, but I enjoyed these. Any idea about the history behind the name for the mountains, "Blood of Christ"?

    I was using a polarizer, but a cheap one that came with my hood. I couldn't find my good one.

    I think the name is from the Spanish period, apparently the mountains turn blood red at sunset under the right conditions.
