I was on short winter holiday in march. I tried to take some landscape photos but it wasn't easy. bright white snow and dark green forest doesn't make an easy subject. I tried making some HDR images but I was succesfull only with one, rest is dine by merging multiple exposure (made from single RAW file as I didn't take my tripod). they don't have as much details as I'd like because I didn't take tripod I couldn't use small aperture. most were shot at f8 (not small enough for landscape but that was best I could do) I was just too lazy to carry a tripod up the mountain with ice and snow. I did take more photos but I'm not really happy with them.

all shot using DL2 and K28mm f3.5 lens (the oldest 28mm)

all comments welcomed.


a panorama using autostich, 2 photos

an HDR attempt, the only good one

ans smal stream ( here I put my camera on my backapack to get longer exposure without camera shake)

and one made with multiple exposure from one RAW file

I like these shots. Even the river. I can see what you were after with the flowing water.

Very nice, and that stream is top notch. Putting the camera down low gave you a great angle for the shot.

The stream is really nice (others are good too)! I'll second the table top tripod, though I don't carry mine very much any more (it'll go back in the pack if I ever take out the second camera body again). Another thing you might try - get a monopod that seconds as a walking stick. Then it can be either a useful balancing prop for hiking through streams or up mountains,or put a head on it and it becomes a more stable platform for your camera, though it won't be as good as a tripod.
