Was not happy with the original shot, but played with the lighting, white balance and blue colour (luminance & saturation) and now quite like this. Was not sure whether to have more or less light in the foreground?

Foreground is a bit too dark for my tastes.

Is this any better, or still too dark? I think that the white background of the forum does not help. Try clicking through to flickr and viewing against black background?

There's still no detail in it. Which might be fine other than the lake in the middle.

I like seeing a little more detail in the foreground too. Here's a quick edit and I kept it on the dark side.

I tried the same type of adjustments to this photo yesterday, but doesn't it seem to contrasty and noisy this way? Personally I think the photo was too under exposed to begin with.

Isn't this where we brag about our gear? I have a super hot wife, a really cool dog, lots of bikes, oh and some overly expensive camera gear.

I didn't expect terrific results working with such a small copy, but think the original copy would have much more detail (this was taken with a 5DIII). It was under exposed, but I still think it could make a nice image.
Since I had such a small image, I just did a quick edit and didn't try dealing with the noise.

Are we saying that this does not work as a silhouette ?

I will play with the RAW as there is much more detail than the JPEG.

There's so much foreground that I just don't think it works as a silhouette; however, it could be a good shot - bob_r's image for reference.

IMO I would prefer to see some more detail in the dark areas. I like the sky though (on the first one). Good photo :)



Cheers,
