Classic Ansel Adams Location (Yosemite)

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Desert Rat, Nov 7, 2005.

  1. Here is a just your run of the mill Yosemite shot at sunset. This is from the classic Ansel Adams Tunnel View of Yosemite Valley.

    Shot is Spring 2005 and it was one of the first images with my D2X :Shocked:

    All comments and critiques welcome..

  2. Very nice I hope to make it out to Yosemite one day I could spend a month there shooting

    Simply Amazing


    That is simply amazing. What a fabulous shot. The D2X looks a real bit of kit but your shot and composition is what counts and it is fabulous.

    I hope you don't mind but I was somewhat inspired by your work and wanted to have a play with the image and came up with this; hope you like the idea.

    Tried a sloightly lighter approach and tried to bring the foreground out.

    I will of course remove immediately if you prefer.

    All the best

    Nice work, though I do agree that i would like to see the foreground brought up a little (not as much as the re-do, it looks artificial). Maybe add some contrast to the foreground would help, too. Can't imagine how grand it looked in person......

    As suggested by BayWing

    Hi Eric

    Following Baywing's advice I reduced the artificial processing and hope this brings out the foreground whilst leaving the rest balanced and intact.

    By the way, odd you didnt see the image before when I did - it is now not showing on my pc???

    All the best
