About the Image(s)

I took this at Shenandoah National Park about a year ago from the balcony of our room. The initial image was an HDR compilation of 5 exposures due to the widely varying light conditions in the scene. Some further processing in Topaz Adjust brought out the many strata more clearly than in the original as well as emphasized the orange-blue contrast. I chose the rather extreme crop to accentuate the key linear element, horizontal crests.

Olympus EM-1, mk ii, Olympus 12-100 mm f/4 @ 100mm, ISO 200, f/11, 1/640 sec.

Well, just wow!! I really love these complimentary, stratified images of the mountains and sky. I think you did an excellent job of differentiating the layers of mountains. I love the subtle tonal changes in the sky and how the intense blues give way to the subtle purples.   Posted: 10/11/2020 18:49:52

David, I like the crop you chose for this image and I think the HDR did a very good job of bringing out various layers of the mountains and colors.   Posted: 10/18/2020 12:47:00
