I must admit to being a little bored with landscapes at the moment, so high is the standard that my eyes tend to glaze over and I pass them by looking for something a little different.

This stands out though .... it looks spectacular and almost hyper-real. You say no HDR but have you manually combined several exposures and/or had a dabble with local contrast adjustments?

Thanks everyone Smile

Your correct Dave i did some work with curves and levels. I also created a second B&W layer and boosted contrast and overlayed it using the luminosity blending mode which adds extra contrast to the scene. I then adjust opacity to suit.

Thanks for the comments Smile

A most attractive landscape, Gary, so well composed, and capturing the chill in the air too so well. Bet you were frozen by the time you bagged this one.
Your processing seems to have changed the direction of the light ot you were up very early in the morning in the summertime? I've been looking at this one for ages Gary and it's intrigueing to say the least. Maybe the long exposure has opened the shadoes which makes the time of day look different.
You might be willing to tell all about when it was taken?

Cheers guys Smile

Yes Dougie this was actually about 5:45 on a late spring morning and the scene was completely different 30 mins later. See Here
