Thanks Pete. Don't do much other than adjust the micro-contrast and pre-sharpen with Nik software. #1 is ways off from the lake with a small window showing what was to come ahead.I like these - looks an amazing place to go. First is particularly dramatic.
What have you done to your processing? It looks so much more crisp and neat!
Thanks. Missed that spot. Fixed it and replaced.nice set, agree PP is much better overall. in number 1 there seems to be a masking issue on the right hand side lake. The selection seems to have a hard edge. needs a little more feathering IMO. That aside its lovely shot, great light, my fave from the set for sure.
Thanks. I have fixed it now for sure. This scene is special to me as not many would have perhaps noticed it in all the wilderness around here. My guide took me to this hidden spot on high grounds.Need to have a look at your cloning in the first picture Sundar. Can still see lines around what ever you've cloned out on the land and a little on the water.
Sorry, can't find any line artifact when I looked at it zooming in. Whatever lines seen around that spot look natural to me. My theory is that the drifting sand dunes near the lake shore may be the cause for this pattern. Did some more touch up and replaced the image anyhow.It's still there. The light patch on the distant shore has a line around.
No worries Sundar @Snips can do it anywhere!Closest I got to a reflection was not on the lake but a small pool of snow melt nearby.
Thanks. Few if any plant and animal species can survive at this altitude unless they have some kind of special genes. The temperature dips below -20 Celsius in winter. The only tree I saw thriving over here is Poplar. Highest point in Europe is Mt. Elbrus at 15781 feet. You can be standing on level ground at that altitude around here.This looks so bleak and grand - very different to the green of much of northern Europe.
