Very nice! Did you have tubes on, or is this shot a mfd?

Thanks. Yeah they would be MFD, or close enough to it. The liveview on the 6D was useful for judging the distance when things were in focus.

I took this a few years ago. Never got around to working on it.

Yes, I had to take another exposure for the sky and blend it in. That spot on left was very bright.

So 2 exposures? i feel i should go this way with blending more than HDR or even with filters, but i am not good at all in mask and layers and blending even after watching many videos or read about it, i feel it is taking long time than fake/ugly HDR, or even longer than just using filter to get it right almost in first place, but really great results out of blending shots so far i can see.

2 exposures for the most part. I had a third that I took that really was for the hottest part of the sunny area that I masked in a bit to keep the highlights contained. I'm honestly not great at masking and it takes me a long time but I've gotten better and cleaner with practice. I think I worked on this whole photo for about 45 minutes, masking probably only took me 15 minutes. It's not too bad once you figure out a way that works for you.

I used to use 4x6 filters quite a lot but have stopped using them and have gone more toward the blending route. The only drop in filters I use these days are the polarizer and occasionally the Big Stopper, though I haven't bought a filter setup for the 14mm anyways. I have experimented a bit with Photoshops HDR blend and instead of making the typical HDR image, I save it as a 32-bit Tif file and then import it into Lightroom, you get much more latitude with shadow and highlight data. It seems to work better with some images than it does for others but it gives decent results. It also allows you to make the image a bit more natural than a traditional HDR.

WOW, 45 minutes? When i am doing HDR and taking about 5-10 minutes i feel it is so long time, so over 15 minutes it will be a torture for me, and i know i will get a great and stunning results, but i really feel i am not the guy to waste time on photos that much, if i will spend about say 20-50 minutes on one photo only, how long it will take if i want to work with only 5 then? i am not sure if i really want to give that long even after i master it, i am very impatient.

But, one day, i will be in mood that long so i can work on 1 or 2 of my top best photos and see what i will have.

I'm stuck editing a lot of weddings and portrait sessions around this time so listening to some relaxing music and spending some time editing a landscape photo is a nice stress relief for me :D

I'd be happy to spend 45 minutes if I got a result as good as this.
