About the Image(s)

The shot was taken weeks ago in the early morning. It was raining and foggy. The best experience was the smell of rain forest. The photo is made of three HDRs with DJI Maveric 2 Pro, A priority, 1/20 sec at f/8.0, ISO 200, 10mm. Very little post processing was applied.

What a great shot to show off the abilities of a drone. I like the composition and shutter speed used in this image, Some definition in the water but slow enough to add some movement. I notice you didn't do much PP. As you have some fog in the image, you could create some more using negative dehaze quite sparingly. The only thing other than that you might see if you like is to go into camera raw and increase the saturation of the orange to enhance the rocks. Nice work.   Posted: 09/04/2021 11:11:10

Thanks for your feedbacks. I tried negative dehaze and select rocks with more orange color.   Posted: 09/08/2021 18:28:31

This image would make a nice postcard. I particularly like the way the fog softened the image. I also like the second version.

Beautiful image and those white spots of fog or lens flair?   Posted: 09/23/2021 09:20:14
