About the Image(s)

Peydo Lake is a "must see" in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rpckies. The light was fairly flat. Settings weref/16 aperture priority. To try to get more detail I tried using a HDR with a light touch, using the optimizer function in Photomatix. The color version, I feel, is a nice calendar picture. I prefer the B&W

Good day, Albert! Yes, this part of North America is a must see...your overall composition is wonderful in its "field of view" that brings a sense of grandeur for viewers'. Well conceived....

However, the grainy aesthetic does not work here. I would have preferred straight photographic capture with post-production completed outside of the camera, in my opinion.   Posted: 10/13/2021 08:05:30

Thank you for your comments. The capture was a straight capture in RAW format. There is some noise in the dark clouds and a dark spot that I missed.

...interesting. Perhaps some in-camera setting, or the HDR routine added this grainy feel. Thank you for your feedback.   Posted: 10/14/2021 10:00:18

The color version is beautiful, but I like the black-and-white better, too. The sky was magnificent to begin with, and the touch of HDR makes it amazing.   Posted: 10/14/2021 14:23:13

The black and white version brings out the structure of the landscape better than the color one, to my eye. The reflection of the clouds and trees in the lake is beautiful. Definitely one for the wall I would think!
