LOL,thanks Mike.usually in a shot like this i pick out a tree and focus on that,always underexpose or should i say bracket heavily,no filter with this one tho,then it's just sharpen,auto levels,hue /saturation,sometimes neat image helps to take out any noise,you can download that from their website for free,it's a good thing to have.
thanks for your very kind comment

Your work is truely stunning and if I had enough time to comment on each and every one of your amazing photos, I would.

Safe to say you are being added to my fave photographers list!!

Beautiful work and lots of it. I hope I can eventually gain an eye for this type of work. I'll be a very happy man if I ever produce a shot anywhere near the standard of all your work.

Keep my eye out for your work from now on!
