Alright.......if you could only see the HUUUUGE smile on my face right now. Just simply....................there are no words to describe these wonderful awesome fantastic...............OH WOW!!!
I am speachless................
Your immaculate series
is awesome, Shahed. You are lucky to live in such a scenic area. Do you have special post processing techiques you use to get these dramatic effects?
Kind of fun scrolling down your images Shahed, just one great shot after another. Well done.
Stunning or as PhotoDawg put it OH WOW
Great pictures thanks for posting
Fantastic collection of images!
What a wonderful group of pictures you posted
there. The only thing that I don't like is the people
in the first shot. Now this is just me, but with
great landscape pictures like these I hate to see
people in them.
Again, great shots
Fantastic for sure. Beautiful views.
Wish I could see places that make you want to stare all day.
Thank you so much for sharing these with us.
WOW is right.
I can't wait to see Part II!!!!!
Great Shots! I especially like the one of the abandoned farmstead and old pump.
Right now I can't say anything but stunning.
Great pictures !
#1. Can you please elaborate on your post processing techniques.
#2. How those two (#1 picture) got so close to the waterfall. That looks dangerous.
Wow, indeed: incredible! Those are so very clear and well composed. Congrats, Shahed! 8) I can't wait to see part II either. :lol: :lol:
Awesome. It is wonderful.
I really like what you did including human elements in your landscapes, really good.
Beautiful work! I love the sharpness and composition of all of these. Really excellent work! I am amazed.
Great shots Shahed. I too would be interested in your processing flow on these.
My post-process technique
I'm no expert to advise you for post processing, but I can tell you what I do with my pictures though.
I use EV3 v4 curve to do most of my landscape and of course I shoot RAW.
First, open the RAW in NC
Change the following:
1. 70% of the time I change the tone to normal. (I find it works like expose to the right, and cuts down noise)
2. Color mode to IIIa
3. Saturation to Enhanced
4. Hue: +/- 3 (depends)
5. I hardly touch the expose comp. because I try to get the right expose at the time of shooting.
6. Color Booster: Auto (Some time manual +3)
7. Color Balance: +2to3 only red channel
8. Curve: Some time I bring the pointer close to the pyramid.
9. Export to PSCS
10. Check the level
11. Adjust Shadow/Highlight, also increase the contrast there. Usually +12
12. USM : 120, .7, 1
13. Run my frame action.
14. Upload to my online gallery.
Hope it helps.
Absolutely gorgeous! Are these (or most of them) from the Banff area? No matter where they are from, you've communicated the beauty of place. Thanks.
Thanks for sharing the workflow Shahed. I am very impressed.
What about your lenses? What do you use?
