Ok, now some background on the photos above for those who are interested:
#1 Lindy Point Sunset
This was taken at Lindy Point in Blackwater Falls SP, WV. First time there and they sky totally cooperated after a passing storm. Just a bit of manual blending in PS to keep the sky in check.
#2 Carter Shield's Cabin
This was in the Smokies along the Cades Cove Loop - I wanted something different than just a "dead" looking cabin shot - I really wanted it to look like someone was home with a warm fire going, ya know?
Well, I decided NOT to get arrested and used a sophisticated remote flash setup instead (i.e. my wife on the other end of a walkie-talkie pressing the button on the flash with an orate filter)
#3 - Tremont Rush
This is another from the smokies - this time the Tremont area. No big tricks here, just some blending to keep the shadow looking right and the highlights from blowing out. I did try some Orton to give ti more of a misty / moody feel (mostly applies to the background)
More shots to come...
