Awesome photo! Sometimes it is those photos that come right out of the camera that seem to be the best. I can't imagine any way to improve this beautiful photo. I wish I knew what time you shot it. It looks pretty late in the morning, but what was the weather situation? What was that fog/dust doing there? Was it a result of a warm, rainy night followed by a cool, overcast morning or something? Was the sun shining before this, or did it just peek out through some clouds and create this scene for just a few moments and then the fog lifted? I would LOVE to shoot in the fog during the day time, but it seems like fog doesn't like the sun.
Allan, sorry it took me so long to come across this photo. I guess you might have noticed, but the way the trees look, with the white around them, doesn't work for me. I would manually "under-expose" that area. You can do this by copying that portion of the under-exposed image layer, if you're making/enhancing an HDR in Photoshop. You just copy the area where the trees are, by lassoing it, feathering the selected area, and clicking Copy from the Edit menu. Then you can make a new layer and paste that. You can move the layer to wherever you need it (on top or whatever). You may need to adjust the color, exposure, or contrast of the new layer a little or erase part of it, to make it work (so it looks natural).
Very cool. This inspires me, because I recently sold my Sony A55 and now I plan to combine photos in Photoshop (GIMP actually) now that I am shooting exclusively with my Sigma SD14 with an 18-50mm lens (and a longer 28-80mm lens, which I ordered super cheap). I'm hoping to get a used Sony A65 for my birthday or Christmas.
Thank you for posting this image Allan. It's an interesting photo. I know that lens can't do f0.9, so what do you think is going on with that metadata?
