These photos were taken the same night and probably within ten to fifteen minutes of each other. The last rays of sun hitting the snow covered mountains were pretty but I didn’t transmit the feeling of cold. I think the second photo does a much better job of communicating the cold of the mountains while still showing the warmth of the sunset. This shows how important it is to have a preconceived idea of the image you are looking to capture. And just as importantly, to understand how different light can completely change the feel of a picture.
