Pictures at Acadia. Comments/edit suggestions appreciated. On the second photo, I am not good at editing pics with clouds. Thanks much. (Sony a6000)

Since you asked, and this is strictly a matter of personal taste and maybe some food for thought, but #2 & #3 I would have pointed the camera up just a little for slightly less foreground. Also, I think your presentation would benefit from a little larger size. But then I am one of those crazy guys who tends to post big pictures, so... :D

I do think your composition is pretty good though. :thumbup:

The 2nd shot is a nice subject and potentially a great composition. More of the sky would be desired, but I understand you wanted to not cut off the foreground subject. Bear in mind, you can vary the perspective by getting lower to the ground to compose a more compelling image. You don't need to always shoot at standing eye level. A common mistake we do and not aware of at the moment. The a6000's tilty screen comes in handy for such compositions.

Thanks for the feedback. Good comments for number 2 and 3. The clouds at Sunrise were spectacular. However, I couldn't capture the beauty. I will try a re-edit. Clouds, in this case fog, are difficult for me to edit to bring out the scene. Number 3 is pretty flat and not well composed as pointed out.

Ed, are you shooting RAW? If not, you would gain more latitude in post if you shot RAW. Might help. I find clouds can be difficult, too. I think it helps to underexpose and pull up shadows as needed, as they are easier to recover than highlight details.
