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?

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 :)

Shahed,

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.

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.

Shahed

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.
