Dear friend Surapon: In the first picture, you use ND grad filter, or darkened the top image with tool "Burn Mid Tones"? ??? I have no ND filter, so I simulate this using "Burn Shadows" only on the sky and clouds, and then use "Dodge High Lights" in smaller percentage. ::) It is a kind of pseudo HDR. :P

I like the composition of the first photo.... but there is something going on there in this photo. The sky looks kind of abnormally blue, that is still alright. However, the threes have highly different exposures. The tree on the right is dark, while the one in the middle behind the barn is lighter, then the parts of the trees above the barn is dark again. Did you use a hard edge graduated ND filter or the ND feature of LR?
Need to learn a lot more.

Nice shots, Surapon, especially no. 1. A more or less typical, but iconic 1800's Southern U.S. scene.

Thanks for sharing.

Dear Sir, Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
You are right on the target, Yes, Sir, For 90% of all my Scenic View, I use CPL. Filter for super Blue color contrast in the sky, Plus Coklin Gradual ND. for darken the sky, And At Home, I use Photoshop 5.5 to Light - up the Dark area such as the tree line.
Sorry Sir, I still do not Play with HDR  and IR yet.---But I will try very soon.
Thanks you, Sir for  all of your comments in this CR., Which I learn from you, Plus all of our friend's comments.
Have a great weekend, Sir.
Surapon.
PS, After I answer all of  our friend's comments, I will post more Photos of The Cotton farm in NC. for you to see, Yes, I still use that Graduated ND on some of Views with the beautiful sky.
