Blue Ridge Mountains

By _Helena_
Over sharpened, and probably over processed. But I wanted this photo in my portfolio because it's the photo that got me back into photography after my long hiatus. My father died in August, and I took this photo in October of last year near where he was laid to rest because I wanted to remember how beautiful this place was. I could never do it the justice it deserves with the skills that I have at the moment, but the colors of this place really make me want to try. Thanks for looking.

Yes over done a little but when a image has such a memory it would be wrong of me to push the point further.
Fine work

Thanks Charles, I thought the same. It's main issue was motion blur, it was very windy and I didn't have a tripod. Then there were blown highlights etc and I tried to do recovery.. but with all that's wrong with it, it's here for a reminder for me. Winds of change.. Smile

Hello Helena,

I understand your feelings perfectly.

The image is fine as it stands. Whatever methods you used, it looks brilliant!! Who needs HDR?

And handheld? Job done, my friend.
