WOW, I want to do landscapes like this one! I am trying but just can't get the right exposure and settings. I'm mounting on tripod and have the settings I think I need, but I am missing something. I'm beginning to think I don't have the debth because I am so used to shooting flowers and birds that are close up. Anyway back to this image, WOW, absolutely gorgeous!!!! #7386373
