Hi All,

 

Long time listener (of the YouTube videos) first time poster. :) I don't normally do any HDR style work but a couple of weeks back at one of my favourite sites in the local mountains, the light just wasn't being friendly so I tried something different. I'd love to hear your feedback and more importantly, your critique of what I'm sure is far below par for this style of photography.

 

Many thanks,

 

Jonathan

Beautiful. I love the contrast between the different elements (water, sky, rocks, etc.).

Very nicely done. Colours match the mood.

Just curious : How would it have been with some more water in the frame ?

Yeah, good question. I have lots of different angles on this lake, some taking the water in completely to make it the main feature and others concentrating on the backdrop of the mountains. For this one, the widest angle I could manage with the lens I was carrying was not much beyond this slightly cropped image. The centre point of the two overlapping landscapes forming a central focal point, with leading lines from several locations, was why I framed it like this. Experimental and possibly much better angles out there; I look forward to trying them all out over time. :)

 

Thanks for the comment and the suggestion.

I too often shoot for HDR when I need better light or too flat a picture.  With all the presets available and ability to adjust contrast, etc.  I find it can save the day.  I also use it on single shots to make them pop.  Great job here.
