Hills of Glan-munchweiler between rays of sun
A lovely view of this magnificent landscape Mark ! Excellent photo
A different approach to processing? I like this, the small pools of light in the darkness, the back lighting on some of the trees, those shafts of light coming down...
A touch more shadow detail in the left foreground, perhaps? But this is a very well thought out image, Mark, and deserving of more effort than is required for the usual lazy 'nice capture!' kind of comment, to repay your own effort
Thanks gents! I found this image...challenging and I'm still chewing on it. I was driving through the hills and came across 3 teenagers taking pictures at this site. The young lady had just purchased her Sony A99 and the poor thing didn't know what aperture was! I'm staggered a teenager would have such a beast for a camera (just looked at the price of the A99 3 times what I paid for my GH2. Wow) At her age I would have to cut a lot of grass but I digress) for a camera like that.
Anyway, I'm basically giving her a free lesson about photography when this scene opens up. I had to grab my camera very quickly for this and I was talking to her as I was trying to get this. Exposed it badly (don't talk while you are shooting! and had to do a lot of "fixing" for this..pity.
Anyway, now you know the rest of the story. I wonder how her shots came out!
I think the strong contrast works quite well although it may be a little too dark for some peoples taste. The light was obviously gorgeous and the slight softness (Gaussian blur?) enhances the image.
Thanks Derek. Selective use of negative clarity. As Alan pointed out it could probably stand so more soft light in the shadows in the bottom left and maybe more. Tricky image to work with actually. Tried my patience and I'm still not 100% satisfied.
The shadow play is excellent as is your comp. I agree about lightening the shadows in the FG which is a bit dark for the rest of the image but boy does the rest of the image sing!
Cheers Almiles! Glad you like it!
Wonderful selective lighting.
