Beautiful place and very artistic interpretation. My favorite part of the image is where the creek bounces between the rocks - it's a perfect exposure to smooth out the water and still show structure and movement.
Funny you mentioned "blend if" as not being popular. I read Russian Photoshop forum (aka "fotoforge") sometimes, and there, "blend if" is being discussed a lot.-
Hi Sasha. Thank you very much for your feedback here.
I too like that area. Looks almost like stair steps, although not too prominent due to the ultra wide angle rendering it far away looking.
So the Russians see the power, beauty and simplicity of Photoshops Layer Style "Blend If"? Well, I knew there was some reason I love Russians! .
That is great. Most don't have a clue as to the full power (for blending dynamic range and other things) that resides there with utter ease and simplicity. My blending video tutorial has literally sold like hot cakes over the last 3-4 months since its release and nearly every single person who has bought it has gone out of their way to thank me and tell me how much it has benefitted their workflow and blending images. I now have so many testimonials, I quit putting them on my website because I think it would look ridiculous. More than once i have been told I: "give too much away." Or they say they no longer feel any need to use complicated layer masks or HDR for blending anymore. So yes, "Blend If" like the Russians do!
I enjoyed your write up.
I'm a hobbyist and enjoy landscape photography on my hikes. I take my photos to capture the moment but I've never bothered to post-process them. You've inspired me to put in more effort
I have had a lot of my Skype students tell me the same. I absolutely love to work hard and put in the effort in whatever I find important in my life. If photography becomes important to you, like it has for me, get CS6 and master it! Starting with the raw converter (Adobe Camera Raw). It will only compliment what you do out there with your camera!
Success to you!
