It's an interesting shot with those blue shadows. Looks like you're hitting some exciting places!

The color was really neat! This was two years ago - it got faved and while looking at it I realized I hadn't submitted it to Wyld-Art so I dragged (drug?) it out of the archives :giggle:

Life has been busy these last couple weeks so no trips - hopefully that'll change soon :nod: How about you? All snowed in?

(And lots of wishes for a wonderful New year!!)

The holidays do get crazy, don't they? I've had a wonderful season, but am ready for 2013. And yes, we've got some lovely snow here but nothing the plows can't handle. No big storms yet. :-)

Best wishes to you and yours for the new year!

Looks natural, cannot tell that you put the moon in. This is done all the time even with film. So to me it is very exceptable. Nice work. Can't wait, as I will be going there for my anniversary in May.

I really like your Yosemite photography. Personally, I like to present my work OoC as often as possible, but I can really appreciate HDR work, especially when it is as well done as this.

Thanks! I tend to be pretty much of a purist too but the rocks just weren't looking "rockish" enough :giggle: so the hdr program Dynamic helped bring it out...

I think the Moon is fine where it is. My only issue on manipulating a pic is when they try to enhance the green of the foliage. No one ever seem to get that one right.

thanks! I agree!! The over saturation of green is yucky!! :laughing:

(I liked the moon and was tempted to not mention adding it, but I was out shooting with several other dA'ers who I thought would 'rat me out' :giggle: if I didn't say anything :D)

What! me worry!

this is very nice; but i think some patches of blue in the middle of the image are too saturated, they look as if they were painted.

there was a very high, thin layer of clouds that when put through the HDR program got very grainy - I did some blurring to smooth it. There was a fine line - too much and the sky went flat and it wasn't in reality and not enough gave more of what you're calling a painted feel...so this was a happy medium to me :D

Thanks for your input :blowkiss:
