Default A Mountain Road

A mountain road in the Alps.



P.S. :
- rotation
- perspective correction
- cropping
- level adjustment
- some big soft burn tool brush strokes on the road

An excellently composed shot. Looks like it stretched the limits of tonal range for the medium, but you avoided blowing out the highlights and the shadows have some detail remaining. Perhaps a graduated ND filter would have allowed better shadow detail (or doing it in PS) but overall, well done!

Roads disappearing around the bend inevitably grab me, always leading to the question of what's beyond. Very nicely done, Sergio.

Thank you all.
Ohenry, I forgot to say, I used the burn tool brush on the lights as well ( the mountains ).

Mmm, what does the ND of "a graduated "ND" filter" stands for ?

I posted a dreamy look version of it on the Digital Forum :

Beside the digital filtering , I have shrinked the shot a little bit vertically in this version.

ND = neutral density.

With Photoshop, you can do the same thing without having a filter on during the shot. Ya gotta love Photoshop! LOL

Sergio,

That disappearing road trick never fails to grab my attention. Well done. As O'Henry remarked, your control of the lighting over such a wide range was exceptional.

Aloha.
