Thank you everyone for all your input. I am glad you all liked it.

For those who inquired, I am using an FZ20 with a Raynox 52mm adaptor set (which includes the UV and Linear Polarizer I used in these shots)

Fantastic work! Definitely want to pick up a polarizer filter... I'm going to be out on a boat in a few weeks and would like to have clearer pictures through the haze of a hot day on the water!



NICE JOB!

Those are great shots.

I'm a little curious about the look of the sky in the second shot--on my monitor it looks a bit blochy. Do you think that might have be an effect of the polarizer or is it just my monitor? I really like the third one best, especially the composition.

Hey Beernutz, I notice the blurring in the sky in pic 2 as well. I am assuming that it probably has to do with the fact that right before this shot I was shooting at the Bridalveil Falls and got a few droplets on the lens and the only thing i had to wipe the droplets off were my t-shirt (lol...i know i should have been better prepared but the waterfalls were absolutely overflowing...and gorgeous)...couldn't help myself...kept getting too close. And the mist at the base of the waterfall covered an area about 200 - 300 feet from its base...so i couldn't even get too close.

here are a couple of otherwise decent photos but a bit messed up cause of the droplets on the lens.

The first one is my favorite, but they all show off the beauty of Yosemite.
love them all.

The first three are outstanding pictures.

You can try to recover some of the data in the underexposed zones of the frame: the trees at the feet of the mountain are nearly black.
(this fact is positive in your pic, because it makes the central tree more visible than in the imagePP by me).


Selective colors in Photoshop and then use the levels or curves but not too much, or the effect will be bad (with jpg you can't bring back as much data as with RAW).

Yest without the polarizer the dynamic range would have probably been even narrower, and in the first pic you'd have to use bracketing top obtain both a non burnt sky and some detail in the shaded mountain and trees.

Narmer thats amazing how you used PS to bring out those trees. Damn one of these days I am going to have to learn how to use PS. Truly amazing what digital does now-a-days.

thanks for all your input
