The place where I got one of my images printed from a single frame of the 5DIII to 60" canvas, used Alien Skin Blow Up 3. Might be worth of a trial to see how you go. The end result was great!

Hi Hammar,

Shooting mostly lanscape / seascape stuff myself, I think your shots are actually really well balanced and exposed. One thing that I think you might be not doing is post processing "enough".

I hope you do not mind, but I took via screenshot one of your shots and did the following:
1) Brightened the foreground
2) increased contrast and saturation via Nik Software Colour Efex Pro by applying Tonal Contrast and Pro Contrast. Overall took me 2 minute so its very easy.

Here is the result. Again hope you do not mind.

Gorgeous shots. Really like the brilliant colors. How did you shoot those? Thanks for sharing. 8)


Thank you! Most of the time, all I end up doing is increasing contrast and saturation with the help of Capture One for Raw editing and then in Photoshop I use Nik Software mostly again for contrast / saturation. I stay away from replacing colour etc - basically I just intensify the scene :)

Sometimes I also exposure blend (+/- 1-2 stops) if required to control the shadows and highlights.

Here is the rest of my portfolio - http://www.flickr.com/photos/stanleykozak/

Lenses / Re: ND Filter system for landscape photography question

I started using the Cokin Z series grad filters. After a while, I upgraded to Singh-Ray and then changed them all to Lee. Big expensive mistake. I advise is to go straight to the Lee. Basically - Cokin and Singh-Ray filers produce a magenta colour cast, especially when you stack them. So for instance if you stack a grad ND and an ND.

Go with Lee.

Have a look here - these are all taken with Lee filters. http://www.flickr.com/photos/stanleykozak/
