    Those are some great looking shots. The only thing
    I would recommend is posting them larger. I think
    you can post up to 960 on the long side.

  5. OH WOW!! The lake sunrise is unbelievable!!! WOW!! :D :D :D :D :D
     
  6. Beautiful images, Durgesh!

    I would consider increasing the contrast slightly on the first one, but other than that I like them all. Each one of those is a shot that I could see myself sitting in place for quite some time to see what happened with the sky and light. You obviously have a good eye for landscape shots.

    I agree, post them a bit larger so we can see more detail.

    Thanks Craig. Yes, I did use a polarizer.
     
  12. Hi Durgesh,

    Very impressive work! They are all great, but my (sentimental) favorite is Yosemite. I like you clean and stylish presentation as well: is that a PS action?

    And Welcome to the Cafe!

    Thanks. If I remember correctly, you sent me this framing action on dpr?
    I like it a lot.

    Roman,

    Let me first say how much I appreciate your comments.

    I see what you mean by more yellow. Either my monitor is to blame or my eyes which like warm feeling in the pictures. I have had similar comments on other pictures by some other members too.

    regarding the sky, its all natural (no addition), I would have applied some saturation to it, if I can remember correctly; this was like 4-5 months back :)

    I'd dig out the raw and do processing again on this one & post.

    I am also working on getting my monitor calibrated again.

    Thanks Philippe.

    I too have a connected feeling about Yosemite; my wife thinks I am crazy about Yosemite :lol:

    Yes, the framing is a PSCS action which another helpful dpr member had sent me.
