Lighting the Tors

By ian.daisley  
Anyone else out in the Peak District this morning? We were treated to an amazing sunrise. I was perched up on Burbage Rocks waiting for the sun to hit the Tors in the distance - I wasn't dissapointed with the result.

Processed in Capture One v4 beta - they have made some nice improvements in the s/w.

Cheers, Ian.

Edit: Looks a little dark now I'm viewing it on my laptop screen. Let me know what you think.

Doesn´t look too dark at all!

I consider myself suitably chastised, Ian Grin
Fabulous colour in this one. Accentuated contrast, perhaps but not overly dark, IMO.

An attractive shot. Taking your point about being dark - I think the sky needs subduing to bring out the land. PS 'darkening highlights' and 'midtone contrast' are possibilities. Vote cast.

Colours look good to me. I was on Mam Tor last weekend, but the sunrise never materialised under the cloud! Perhaps I should have gone again today!

Jealous as hell Ian. I woke up about 20 mins too late to go out for sunrise. Looks like I missed a crcker!! Went out for sunset instead, but never materialised!!

Thanks all.
Martin - it was one of those mornings where you wanted to be in a hundred different places all at the same time!
Cheers, Ian.

Saw the light when I woke up, but had to work. Looks great against the dark sky.

Cheers Martin - can't help thinkng that there's a better composition than the one I took. No foregound perhaps and just the strip of light in the middle....

Perhaps, but I do like the light on the foreground heather.
