Like it Pierre, good to see you have not got a large sun with white in the centre. Reflections work well. Lighting in the sky, perfect   Posted: 06/09/2022 23:37:11

Love your reflections and positioning of your sun burst between the trees. I wondered if a little dehaze may help with clarity of the image to make the colours no so smokey.   Posted: 06/14/2022 17:44:31

Hi Terina,
I worked with the original. Slightly decrease the haze, decrease the shadows, but mainly increase the mid-tones.   Posted: 06/14/2022 18:28:35

Very nice shot. I also like the way the sun is not so large and blinding but subtle with the flares. (f22?) The reflections are nice and the vignette also brings one into the center subject area. Nicely done.   Posted: 06/23/2022 21:37:00

Hi Pierre, I love to note that you were well prepare with your Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II lens. That was the perfect lens choice for this shot. Btw, I notice you are using Canon R5 and edit with ON 1. Any particular reason for editing with ON 1 rather than PS?

Btw, I would add a bit of sky portion to make the horizon off-center a bit. I just love the mood.   Posted: 06/27/2022 01:08:09

Hi Frans,
I found that ON1 works very well for me. There is an integrated Noise Reduction/Sharpening AI that works wonderfully. They just added an AI resize module, also integrated, that also works very nicely.
Since I started using ON1, I essentially do not need PS or LR.

Thanks Pierre. I thought one of your reasons using ON1 because of large RAW format from your Canon R5.   Posted: 06/27/2022 19:31:49
