This was a 2.5 minute exposure at F14 using a 17mm lens with a full frame sensor digital camera. I used a 3-stop hard grad filter to control the sky. PS work was limited to RAW processing and select luminosity adjustments.
The light on the foreground rocks is amazing...nothing lost to shadows at all.
Thanks so much for the information, I really appreciate it. I'm just starting out and am going through a stage where I'm concentrating as much as possible on technical aspects of exposure in the hope of making it second nature...so I can shoot more instinctivly.
This is wonderful wonderful work. I'm a big fan of Joe Cornish and Charlie Waite for the "soul" that their images have. A clear communication of the love of nature, which is evident in your work.
Thanks so much for sharing it here (in such high resolution too). It's incredibly inspiring and motivating...and (to be honest) a little depressing at how far I have to go to capture something so beautifully.
Can I point out that when you reply to someone here, they won't see your reply unless you click the reply button on their original message.
That way it goes into their message box (as this has yours)
Sorry if I'm pointing out something that you already knew. I just didn't realize you'd actually replied to me until I came back and hunted through the comments on your photos again.
