Very nice...best viewed full size.
Some funky processing here...dark halos above the pines....then lighter in the valley?

I like this one a lot. Agreed that some better processing might make it even better, it isn't obtrusive. Overall I see some really great shots that you post, almost all of which would be taken to a significantly higher level with an investment in better processing techniques. Not trying to be negative but rather to encourage spending some time developing in this area as it would make many of your photos dramatically better.

Thanks for the comments, especially EJ for your advice on processing. I'm not sure where I could find out how to make this improvement.

YouTube is a great resource for this.  I don't know what you use as your RAW processor.  If it's Lightroom, some of Alister Benn's stuff (Expressive Photography) is good and there are mnay others.  If it's Capture One, their YouTube page has a massive amount of content on how to get the most out of that.  Since the COVID thing, they are doing almost daily tutorials.  The amount of good solid info on YouTube is almost overwhelming.
