Very pretty.

simple, yet effective.. i rather like this shot..

i can't help but wonder if there was another shot using that road as a lead in to something.. or if there is something of interest that could be used as foreground..

still, its a very pleasing image.. nice work

thank you Hards80

I wanted to keep the beginning of road outside and use the green volume to balance the volume of the wood on the upper left side

Hards80 Nov 6, 2005 10:22 PM

well you have definately succeeded in a balanced and pleasing image..

Nice shot Ys.

From all your pics I notice that you were either using a graduated ND filter or blending images in photoshop. If it is the second, your technique is pretty good.

I dont use (gradient, ND or 3diaphragm) filters
I look for the darker part of the landscape
then i do my light metering on an element not so dark to get the darker part just 1 stop at the left middle of my histogramm
so my photo is a lot overexposed
i shoot a second one just in case I have a burned zone
then I combine 2 time the same photo darker and for the sky and normal for the fields

sometimes (many levels) i use 3 or 4 images and 4 lights and 4 focus

i dont know if my englisjh is so clear :-)

Thanks Ys, I understand don't worry.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"This may help your cause some more - check out for an action that pretty much automates the digital blending process.
