Thanks - it's the clarity of these that I am envious of. Still my grass is green which was very important to me. You've taken this further along than where I was. I'll go back one day, hopefully get a less hazy day.
The edit is so much better. I am ok without the ground and the big distant view is what matters here.
You got a brilliant day for these. When I went it was too hazy and that low bank of mist hides all sorts of sins like ski centers, a distant forestry track that narks me etc.
For shots 2 and 3 I really would crop wider losing the bottom trees altogether.
I find the huts (unlike most) a bit of an eyesore when I came here. I'd focus on them and I wouldn't suggest any more contrast at all. First shot of post 6 in this thread works well and of post 4 shot one cropped...

These are great - viewed on a colour managed web browser and profiled screen. I saw these on a naff screen and thought wtf but reserved comment until I saw them for real.
The steely tones of two make it stand out with the textures of the rocks up front - a real feast for the eyes
Any foreground imho wouldn’t be worth having. Some messy tree branches aside. I’m all about the distant view. A drone would be a cool idea but I don’t have one, or particularly want one. However a hike up Mondoto could give a very different view. If/when/if you have been you’ll...
They were taken on the body you sold me - it's a nice thought anyway.
It's an amazing place and I know if you went you'd love it and bring back amazing shots. From where you live it's probably no further than Skye and miles miles better (more pictures will follow later and I am finding my mojo...
I like less contrast than most when I process but these seem a bit too washed out - I certainly don't think you need to fill all the histogram and usually make a point of leaving a bit of room at both ends (what's the point of having a camera with lots of dynamic range only to kill it all in...
You can still see the road - and for that reason I think the shot fails - and also for the half cut off mountain. That road makes getting access to the Glen amazing, but you have to take great care in your location and composition selection to avoid framing it.
What I might have done is got to...
Bloody hell - that’s how to do “foreground”
Love the composition and light of one. Very edifying although with a 3x4 or 5x7 or even 4x5 taking off the bottom you’d have a less skinny looking picture - although as present that would make a belting smart phone wall paper
Composition stands out here with the framing of the autumn tree. Nicely seen and thoughtfully processed with a fantastic 3 dimensional depth to the shot.
Not my bag subject wise but as this sort of thing goes this is as good as it gets.
Bloody hell - lucky you. I miss it terribly and they’re always on my mind.
Reckon from what I see on social media from over there it’s full snow ahead - so a lot of the higher up lakes could be frozen.
That said - I’d try Embalse de Pineta, Lac D’Oredon if the roads open. If not you might be...
