Upload & Sell: Off
I was doing electronic housekeeping yesterday and found this. I actually have several exposures, some darker, some lighter, but I used a darker exposure and brought out shadow detail for these purposes since it was easiest.
I like the light in the valley, and I usually like sunstars and such, but part of me thinks the flare effect is too much, looks like a 60s movie.
What do you all think of it?
If people don't think it's too much, I might try to more carefully use multiple exposure layers, etc. This was shot on a Nikon D2x, and so if you just bring out shadow detail you bring out a lot of noise; more careful stacking of multiple exposures would be much better.
Further, another personal criticism: the methodology for this was just find a decent composition, setup, wait for the sun to come up, and then crop in PP. I think I could have done better if i more carefully evaluated the situation from an artistic standpoint.
Anyway, thanks for any comments.
