Another one with the 16-35... I was really happy with the corner sharpness on this one. Lots of detail in the trees.
Lovely shot. Terrific. Thanks for sharing.
I'm still a rookie on landscape work -- how on earth did you get the trees in the foreground so bright? It looks like those trees are below the line of the sun, and your skyline is sufficiently uneven to make using an ND grad pretty difficult. So how did you get that? What that a composite of a few exposures? Surely you didn't just push up the shadows in post...
Thanks! You're right about the composite - it's one shot for the ground and one for the sky. The trees in the middle aren't as below the horizon as it looks... they're kind of coming up the hillside at me. The very tops of them were just getting touched by a bit of sun. Add a bit of curves and you have bright trees.
