Yet another. I can post 'em all night folks. Again, tell me why a landscape photographer NEEDS to lift shadows.
Canon 50D. No lighting equipment. No shadow lifting. Highlights -5 in ACR.
Yes, please do keep posting. Eventually maybe we'll see something impressive. Sorry, but your "AMATEUR" slams are really off-putting, which of course appears to be your whole purpose here.
Whenever I read what landscape pros (with actually impressive work) write about their workflow they all recover shadow details in post. Their work is amazing, they earn their living from such work, they are professionals, and yet somehow they find the need for shadow recovery. I don't mind if you want to have an opinion that recovering shadow detail is poor practice, but calling it "absolutely amateur" is absolute nonsense.
Posts like yours are why these dynamic range "discussions" prove to be so horrible. Seems like they are the spawning ground for trash talking instead of nice civil discussions about the merits of various sensors.
