Amazing, but there seems to be a bit of pixelation, or something

I didn't pay much to this one in the loupe but lookin' at it now I already added it to favorites!

At first I thought the green was under saturated but now it amazes me and keeps me searching for any interesting stuff I can find on the ground.

Truely worthy of a wallpaper!

Awesome blue in the sky - did you tweak the colors in PS to accomplish it ?

This is pretty cool, Macindows. I do not know if it is my impression, but it seems an 'aging' image, leaving a good mark. The plains, mountains and sky are optimally positioned. Thank you very much!

having traveled through wyoming and the western plains on my way to re-locate to washington, i can say that you have truly captured what it was like on that awesome drive.

truly stunning picture.

I guess I'm in the minority here but I don't care for the vignetting effect on the image. I think darkening the overall look of the sky would have added sufficient drama. Beyond that it does capture the cold, lonesome feeling of the high plains in the Fall when Winter is about to set in. The same location and perspective would be great in the Spring, too, when the wild flowers are in full bloom.

Thanks guys for all your nice feedback! Lerch84, I couldn't find any noise or pixelation in this picture. Where did you see that?

Whitedog, thanks for your comment. I used the vignietting for a good reason. I wanted to emphasize the emptyness of the scene and focus the point of view into the center of the picture. Furthermore, I think the vignietting contributes to the overall atmosphere of the motive. In the end, it's a matter of taste I guess. Still, thanks for the comment!

I took it upon myself removing some of the vignetting in Photoshop. You can use Filter>Distort>Lens Correction and use the vignetting control.

All and all a great photo.
