Great scene, though this image appears to be a recovery from a very dark image.

What happened to the 'brief as possible' part?!

Sorry, but I don't know what that means. Technically, it is a bright exposure (8 seconds) taken down to the proper luminosity and then a couple of bright highlight areas healed using the "Blend if" method. But yes, it is not a bright and cheery image for sure. It represents the season (at least for me) pretty well, that I described. Kind of a clash of light and more ominous elements. What most don't catch here is that literally, directly behind me is a full blown rainbow going on!

Hey Mark,

A very cool shot here. You really have some cool light in this. Congrats on the move, that area is sure jam packed with locations to shoot.

Jim



Thanks much Jim. Yes, unbelievable around here. I'm in town and deer were running through my yard this evening!

Love this but somehow I do feel that a wider panoramic perspective will suit such a scene better.

What a fantastic shot. I too have tried to get shots from that location and been skunked on the lighting part. You must have some good karma built up

Welcome to the "neighborhood" and I look forward to more of your fantastic work.

This is really gorgeous - my first thought, though was .... Mordor! I can be weird that way. Enjoy your new home and surrounds; hope your days become more sunny as time goes by.

Great shot, Mark. Can you describe - or link to a description of - the Blend If method you've referenced twice?

A couple comments, first I 'll remember what you had to say about Bend Oregon. I fill you had very good light despite others saying dark. A beautiful image and equally post processed work

As the post previous to me, can/willl you shed a little light on your HDR blend If method.
