Pretty cool. I like the log in front of the water.

I like it... but that seems like a very long exposure time.

The big, blown out chunk of sky at 12:00-high really distracts from an otherwise nice composition. Also feel like the trees on the right shore are all leaning toward the water...could be real or could need a lens correction.

Ahh I feel your pain. That's always a bummer when this happens!

Did that for the dreamy water effect.

I think these days, landscape shooters do focus bracketing along with exposure metering and blend them all in post. You should give the technique a try. It really amps up your landscapes.

I have tried that and I did a series of bracketed photos and did the HDR treatment. Nonetheless, I had one shot that had the entire range,without clipping, and with Adobe RAW, got a much better result than the HDR.

Its not exactly HDR. You take multiple shots focusing at different distances. This way you can shoot at your sharpest aperture like f8 and get everything in focus.

light is light paul. you caught the light. it's a nice scene too. sometimes "as is" is far more credible than "as a i want it to be". that said when the light opens up it is a spectacular time to shoot a scenic!

for landscape scenes you can do exposer bracketing. ie one or two shots exposing for highlights and one or two shots to get good details of shadows.then in photoshop working in layers you use masking to get the highlights of underexposed shot and shadows of overexposed shot. This is called digital blending.digital blending for many a landscapes especially seascapes is straight forward many a times you can use even gradiant for masking.

next time you shoot do exposer bracketing for landscape and if you are not able to digitally
blend them to your satisfaction. post the bracketed shot on the forum , we will show you
how to do it.

Exposure bracketing has its uses, but I don't think it could make this image any better, except perhaps for the slightly blown sky, but that's minor and could probably be helped in PS. And of course it's a matter of taste.
Well done, pelooyen, 13 seconds of your life that you don't need to regret :)

Exposure bracketing probably would have helped prevent the sky from being over exposed but I think the magenta color cast throws everything off more for me.

Here's a different take on the color tones.

Its a good shot, Paul. You might try somewhat of a pano crop on this one. It seems to help draw a bit more attention to the interesting foreground elements (and eliminates the blown out sky portion as a bonus). Though I attempted some color adjustment, this was done on a non-calebrated monitor at work, so the color could be off. Its mainly the crop that I wanted to experiment with.

Interesting that you did the desaturation and cropping on my edit rather than the OP's original in his first post. :D
