Default School me......

Proved to be a real task for me. The shot is across the bay from where I live, the rising sun just having risen about the receding fog and clouds (viewers right). It played all sorts of havoc with its strong influence where it fell, further darkening the shadows too.....ARG.

Tips, suggestions, etc, on how I might control a shot like this better?
Thanks

Can't talk about the photograph though, but it's a wonderful place to be.

The fog is going to be moving pretty rapidly in a shot like this, so it would be difficult to take a bracketed series to merge to HDR, which is what is needed. You could probably use a psuedo-hdr action or program, such as Martin Sykes' Autohdr (plug). I have tried it on several photos, and it does an excellent job in most cases. Just look up Martin's profile here and d/l it from his website. Free.

Maybe a ND filter would've helped more to enhance the colors...

"...Just look up Martin's profile here and d/l it from his website." Can you help us a little here with more details, VTphotog?

Check the HDR forum for the thread Martin started on HDR from a single jpeg. Click his name, and 'view profile'. Contact info has a link to his website and d/l.
