    sorry for the double post ...

    ... but I was hoping to get some comments from the "other side of the camp" too when I posted these shots under "Tips and Techniques."

    Magic Valley in Twin Falls, Idaho:

    This lake is barely visible in the shot above. It is on the left, between the first and second bridge supports.

    tor that first one is beautiful ! i think the bridge is a little too close to the top though. i would try sacrificing the foreground to unsquash the top of the bridge.

    I like the first picture a lot- give more sky above the bridge and pull down the highlights is all I would do. Might need a wide angle to fit more of the bridge and sky in the image. What time of the day did you take it? You might get even better lighting if you were on the other side of the bridge or took this shot at the opposite time of day... morning instead of evening or vice versa. Throw on a neutral density filter and even a tobacco GNDF and voi~la. Great shot. My wifes uncle lives in Twin Falls, and we have traversed that bridge many times. I can't beleive I didnt know it was that beutiful... i guess it pays to open my eyes every once in a while heh?

    Thanks, Rooz and Chris. Similar comments were made in the other thread, so I tried adding some sky: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/sho...d=1#post239508

    Chris, it's nice to be visiting your territory, for a change now you know how I feel when you inspire me in my own area! It really was beautiful. I took it at 6:30 p.m. I would have loved to spend more time, but we were on a "quick" 500-mile trip to Boise! But I didn't see the Twin falls, or get to go to the other side of the bridge, where I did see a long, thin waterfall down the side of the gorge. There were beautiful walkways and viewing platforms. It really was very smoky, though. I hope the fires are out now. And next time I go through Idaho, I'll plan some time in Twin Falls

    Chris, if you have time, or anyone else, would you mind doing a quick edit to show me what you have in mind with pulling down the highlights?

    The ML-3 is a great remote. I dont own one yet, due to its price, but had a chance to use one for a short time and its amazing. I WILL be getting one, and if you are in need of a remote, pick one up!

    How many "takes" did you go through, Andy? And were you sober afterwards?

    This is the best I could do with the blown out highlights...as a rule of thumb, I prefer to under expose and then pull out the highlights as needed vs. fixing over exposed images
