Looks like it was a nice day for hiking! I like #8 the best -- having the person in the pic helps with appreciating the size of those rocks. I also like #7 a lot, but I kind of wish you would've gone just a little bit wider to include more of the mountain in the background. Great set of shots though. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely images Jim. No 7 is my favouite out of an excellent set. It's got a wonderful 3D feel to it.

I bet you had a good trip, the scenery is great! I have to agree with the other regarding 7 & 8 being the best of the lot. The person in the picture gives a scale on the grand scenery, showing how small we really are

I agree that no7/8 sticks out. Especially no8 for me; longer focal lenghts works well to compress the distances.

No3 would have been a lot better with a more interesting sky, but that is kind of hard to control...

I find it very interesting to see pics from this area, as I'll be stopping in Colorado Springs for a few days in late September at the conclusion of a photo trip around the southwest.

#7 is great, and I love the light in #1 and #2, despite the flat sky.

Very enjoyable set, Jim. I particularly like 7, 8, and 10 for the way the use of people really gives a feeling of depth and scale.

Thanks to everyone for looking and commenting. Colorado is best under blue skies, but I tried to make the most of it in spite of the clouds.

I guess I'll be the different one. My favorite is #5 because I like the more intimate composition that lets me focus on the curves of the shoreline, the lines in the ice and the textures in the sand. #7 is my second favorite and I'd like it more if you had been lucky enough to have better light and sky.

I'll go with the crowd - No 7 is my favourite. However, have you tried a black and white conversion of it? I think it would look very good in B&W.

Well, thanks to a suggestion and sample from Frank, I decided to boost the saturation a bit on #7. Tell me what you think...
