Landscape / Re: Beautiful sunsets

This photo kind of surprised me, because those colors came pretty naturally in it.
It's HDR photo from 3 images, added them in photomatix, done that and then imported in LR and added like +5 to saturation and couple brush strokes of red in sky and water.

Hello CR!

Long story short.
During midsummer I went to cottage for couple days and that very evening temperature dropped just nicely few degrees down when it started to rain. It didn't rain for long but just enough to create this lovely smooth silky fog above the lake.
And what was even better than that. Was that swan family just passing by across to other side.

Also I tried to take HDR shot and have to say, I'm pretty pleased how it turned out!

Canon 7D, 35 & 55mm, 3exp. for Deck picture and single 1/60th for Swans, both F2.8 and ISO 200.

I found out the same, but I switched to macro photography now and been taking a ton of those now. Gonna change to landscape back when I got bored with macros. 8)

And most likely Nikon had to fix that backfocus issue what they had with D4.

I used luminosity mask to sky and brightest areas on the ground also. But there is so much to learn still  ;D

Yeah, I haven't calibrated my monitor for quite long time, it might start to get bit out of range now  :-\
Or just might be that I rushed those bit too quickly and didn't pay enough attention.

Landscape / Editing critique needed!

Hello CR!

I got this inspiration to try out different editing techniques, usually I have done everything with Lightroom.
But this time I tried something new with Photoshop. Luminosity masks and combining Lightroom and Luminosity mask editing style.
Got pretty amazing looks with it and that's why I'm here asking your critique about this.

My friend was enough kind to give couple pictures from his Japan trip last week.
Shot with:
• 5D Mark III
 • 16-35 F2.8L II - 16mm
 • ISO 100
 • 1/200th
 • F7.1

I'll add the original picture that haven't been edited and then three other pictures that have been edited with only Lightroom, then Photoshop using Luminosity Masks and lastly COMBINE of those.
Basic critique needed to this one, I would love to hear your thoughts of this one. 8)
