    This is a great shot. Your composition is great. Did you use your circular polarizer? It looks like you underexposed the foreground in order to keep the sky, which is a good strategy. But then you really need to boost the foreground in PP to bring the shot back to life.

    I played with it a little here. Hope you don't mind. This is mostly just curves and saturation, nothing you couldn't do with a cheap or free PP program.

    thanks for your input toriaj
    i can see what you're saying about boosting the foreground so i gave it a shot in lightroom. It was kind of a gloomy day so i was trying to keep it as close to real as possible

    looks good, scottman. I like your edit better than mine. It looks like you ran into that same yellow tone in the brighter greens, I'm not sure where that comes from but I'm sure it could be reduced with effort. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your stuff.

    In photoshop you could fix the yellow tone by using the hue/saturation tool. Using this tool you can select the colours you want to edit, and then use the hue slider to turn the yellow into green.
    Having said that, I think the greens look natural in the last edit. The picture still lacks a bit of contrast, though. I think the contrast (particulary on the rocks) is better in Tori's edit. If you keep the saturation of the trees down, I don't think giving the rocks more contrast will reduce the gloomy look you are after.

    Last week I finally took some landscapes shots again; since January I hadn't shot any, because there were hardly any interesting sunsets in these months (on the days I had time to shoot, anyway).
    I was a bit too late for the sunset, the colours were much better earlier.

    This one was a 5 second exposure at f/9 and ISO200. I edited the picture with Capture NX.

    You could get that close to it? Excellent job on the focus!

    Rooz, that's one sharp lens with very nice bokeh. Of course, it takes someone like you to show it off.
