    This was taken after sunset near the iconic Kirkjufell Mountain. I used my 100-400 to compress the scene, with layers from the water, mountains and clouds. Any thoughts are welcome. 5345 Grundarfjorour Twilight_850.jpg

    Very nice image, I would clone the pole on the foreground mountain however.

    Very nice scene and I like the compression stack. I agree with Ben on cloning out the poles.

    Nice, Kyle. Your lens did not 'compress' the scene. It only gave you a narrower field of view. Your long camera to subject distance is what creates the visual effect you are referring to.

    Hey Kyle,

    Very nice layers! I like the look of this. The hills with the peaks behind them is cool. I wonder if you brightened up the house and buildings just very slightly how that would look?

    I would dehaze the image just a bit.
