Aspen in Silverton, CO

By makeupmagic    
Here is another Aspen photo without the blocked path to the Aspens. I can see the same EV on this one so should I have set this one on +.3 because of the shadows? I do love the shadows across the path, though.
Looking forward to further help.

A very pleasant scene and I like that one bit of fluffy cloud positioned in the gap between the trees.

I suspect from your comments on your last uplaod that the EV was set accidentall. No real detriment as it's turned out.
Setting a positive EV will make the whole image a touch lighter. As it is, there's a lot of mid tones here which doesn't cause exposure issues or make detail tricky to record. And with multisegment metering set there's no need to consider exposure compensation here.

Yes, the shadows across the path re very attractive and that's why I'd like to have seen more of them. Ti;lting the camera down slightly would have been fine. You'd still have the sky and cloud but a little less of the treetops which given the whole scene here won't be missed.

In fact, you could exclude the sky totally and condentrate on the shadows and path. There are multiple compositional possibilities so it's worth trying variations when you're out.
Hmm, I like taking out the sky. I am printing some of my photos for my walls. I might try a pano of 3 without the sky. Thanks

This is much more successful to my eye. The composition has a structure, and I love those shadows - I'd really like to see more of them. The foliage is less dense, so there is a better sense of texture. And that little cloud is delicious.

The normal advice would be that when looking through shadows to a bright sky, a small plus exposure compensation is advisable. That's to get a decent exposure on the trees. I certainly wouldn't set a minus here. But your settings have worked out nicely.

I will pay more attention to the EV now that I have learned more about its use. Thank you again all of you for the help.

A panoramic option is a good one, and would look good on the wall.

How opinions can differ. I think taking out all of the sky is detrimental. I would remove just a trip retaining all of the could. The blue act as a complementary to the vast amount of warm tone and is thus a very good composiinall balance.

Ive uploaded the image with the -1/3 removed, effectively no correction.

We are assuming the that the image youve uploaded is straight from the camera with no processing whatsoever, - is that correct?

I would think that a straight from camera would appear underexposed.

Huge Wow! I love it. I dont think I made any changes, so yes right out of the camera. I am excited to get another opportunity to get out into the wilderness to try out new camera knowledge! thanks all of you!!
