About the Image(s)

Taken a bit before prime color in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia.
Just after sunrise with some color on the trees and fog rolling around the valley. I can make clouds appear, but haven’t found ways to make the rolling fog happen. This might be the best the fall season has to offer. It’s been quite dry. Processed in Lightroom and Luminar.
Metadata is ISO50, 92mm on my 28-300, f11 and 1/5 sec.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

This is a gorgeous shot. I dodged the upper trees a little and then made a slight bit more contrast in the sky. What do you think?   Posted: 11/12/2020 12:40:51

Thanks Karen these suggestions work for me. Cloudy sunrises or I slept too late, but the wind came along and blew everything but dull leaves down.   Posted: 11/12/2020 13:38:27

Hello Bob, Every thing is lovely in the Shenandoah.
I was playing lets see what the clouds look like and the right one resembled to me a ghoul . While the other side resembled snow on Mtn tops. My focus was on the sunlight tree in the fore ground... Nice   Posted: 11/12/2020 16:26:52

Fog is always a big draw for such images. I used NIK to add contrast and detail and darkened the bright parts of the sky. It is a lovely scene. I heard the Shenandoah was mobbed at times this fall.   Posted: 11/16/2020 16:19:13

Gorgeous shot! Love the colors & hue, never been there but it is giving me a great visual reference. The clouds do the trick, I am not sure I would change anything. More or less colors, saturation & contrast are of a personal perception. Wonderful image!   Posted: 11/16/2020 21:29:36

Really good image, Bob. Colors are eye candy! My only suggestion is to eliminate the space on the right to give the image more balance - plus, I don't think that space adds anything to the image and won't be missed.   Posted: 11/17/2020 10:43:12
