Mendenhall Glacier Aerial
by: © Linda Yee
Nice overall shot. Not hard to imagine there are tens of thousands just like it.
Any time you can get to Alaska and shoot glaciers do it.
Just a little bit static. The middle of the photo needs to be a little more dynamic.
Use of camera,
ISO 400 is a good point to start. At the f/8 I imagine you were around 1250 shutter speed. That should stop the inherent vibrations in the chopper.
Great. You have everythin in focus
You were a slave to mid day sun because of the tour you were on. If you could see this early or late day you would have a different appreciation for the shot.
Everything looks sharp. F/8 over a long distance is the sweet spot on the lens.
Trying to capture the colors and grandeur of the glaciers and icefields near Juneau, Alaska. This was done from a tour helicopter and was my first attempt at aerial phot see all >

How to improve your photo
I will mention three things that I think are important. The first is out of your control but try and get there early or late. Completely different. I think you would be astounded what happens in the twilight hour or the minutes just after sunrise.
Have someone hat is proficient in photoshop work on the file. I would like some more sharpness and contrast in the mountains and some better and cleaner whites in the snow.
This type of shot lends itself to a Panorama format. It would be nice to see what was on the left and right and had stitched that into the photo.
