Here are a few more from yesterday's outing:

This is a panoramic made up of four vertical HDR shots:

I really love this shot for some reason:

Photos like these are not easy to achieve - one cannot point a camera at a misty patch of woodland and get memorable images as you have done. Congratulations!

BTW, I would be interested to know more about your workflow.

Thank you, that's very kind. I have explored the area before so I knew exactly where I wanted to be when the conditions were right.

Sure - my work flow is very simple. For this particular shot, I used the cameras automatic bracketing mode (+/-1 EV), which gives three separate exposures. I do all my edits in Lightroom, including using the HDR Photo Merge tool. And then I apply one of my own presets, I then push shadows to +100 and drop highlights to -100 and then add couple of Grad Filters to bring down the highlights and push the shadows a bit more specifically.

As much as I like the post processing aspect of photography, I'm also quite impatient so I don't go crazy with it.

You're welcome! The PP is made far easier when the composition is right and the conditions are perfect, I spent 5 minutes max editing this photo.

I like the first one a lot :-) It's a geologically young landscape but I suspect it is not in ther US. S. Ameriaca? Or even New Zealand may be.

Thanks, surprisingly it is southern California, where we have no rain most of the time, fortunately this last winter we got much more rain that everywhere is green.

Beautiful Dan, we stayed in Hope Valley 2/3 years ago in the springtime. It really is a beautiful place. We'll probably be back soon as we love to holiday in this country.
