Congratulations to 1bwana1 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


The Alpe di Siusi is a high alpine meadow in the Italian Dolomites. It is accessed by a Gondola from the center of the town of Ortisei in the Val Gardena, Italy. It is a wonderful ride up, with amazing views. Once at the top, you are presented with a huge meadow, with Dolomite peaks in the background. You can hike along a series of trails, offering many photographic opportunities.

The Rifugios are small wooden huts meant to supply shelter in bad weather. They are scattered throughout the area, and some are available to rent to hikers.

I found the one in the image along one of these trails. It was late afternoon, and we were blessed with rapidly moving scattered clouds. This provided dappled light that moved across the landscape. I set up my tripod in order to capture the light as it highlighted different areas of the image with a plan to blend them to create ideal lighting on areas of interest. I will still do that when I get home and have time. This is a single image, that alone does very much what I was after. Very lucky again on this trip. It is a simple, and minimal LR only edit. I hope you enjoy.

This is a beauty. I don't think any compositing can improve on this.

Thanks, yes it is better than I had hoped to get in a single exposure. I will still try the blended images to see if more drame is available.

Yes, this is finally a good photo - not overprocessed in these cliched ways we unfortunately see too often these days, and also in this forum.

Wonderfull light you had there, I bet if you stayed there for hour you probably wouldn`t know which exposure you would show here :-)

Cheers, A.

Excellent. When you do create a blend that makes you happier, I'd love to see it next to this one here.
