After some playing with my scroller, I've decided I like it better if the sky was entirely cropped out. The point of this picture, as it gets translated to my viewing mind, at least, is the deeply saturated beauty in the flora that makes Alaska. The sky is bright white, and actually makes some of the upper flora fade out noticably (to me). There's a tradeoff with the crop, though, in that the sign gets chopped off a little. Whether that's better or worse is up to you, the very fine photographer of this beautiful image.

Oh yeah, and I wish you a marvelous new year. Smile

I am with Chris about the sky. But the rest of it is super! How about a tiny crop and then some careful cloning in of some tree branches to cover the remaining white sky. If you erase the sky and create a new layer under the background and clone onto that, it will then leave the impression that they are trees behind the roof. It will be fiddly but worth experimenting with. Viv

I am astounded just how temperate Alaska is - judging by the flora on display - nicotiana, alyssum, begonia, fuchsia, and pelargonium to name several. The colours you have captured are perhaps the truest of any colours that you have displayed on PhotographyBlog. Excellent.

You should see all the flowers they have there. I my self was surprise to see for my self, even the vegetables they can grow there. I guess if we had 24 hours of sun we could do the same ? IT was a life long time dream for me to go to Alaska and glad I did. Thanks for your comments and you and family have a very good New Year. Smile
