Good evening everyone, out again this evening to Llanberis, the clouds were nice but the lake was not as I would have liked. This is a 5 image HDR.
Kood ND8 and soft grad up front.
Thanks for the comments on previous Llyn Padarn
Love the dramatic sky, nicely composed and edited.
Love the light on the distant hills
Fabulous sky in this fine composition
Great comp and lovely light.
great comp geoff super colour and light love the sky a cracker nice one
very nice sky and comp, would be so much better with smooth water and reflections but I still like it for the heavy sky and setting
I am hving trouble working on 3 image HDR's and not happy with any of them so far - but this is just sensational - wonderful image. Jo
Beautiful work. Wonderful light.............Sandy
Beautiful image. I love the light on the distant hills.
I had this pegged as an HDR from the thumbnail. It's always a good idea to check thumbnails of your HDR shots to see if they stand out.
There is a nice amount of detail in the foreground grass and the colours on the hills are good. In my opinion though you have over-cooked the sky. It is far to heavy and contrasty for the rest of the scene. My advice would be to either reduce the HDR strength, ramp up the smoothing or select the sky and reduce the contrast in final edit.
Thanks Ian for the tips, I think the main problem was using the grad up front to darken the sky in the first place also used an ND8 to try and soften the water a little, have taken back into P/S and adjusted contrast and brushed over the clouds.
v2 for me seems better balanced,lesley
Beautiful location Geoff. V2 is my preference
