    Went for a drive the other day with my sister, she had a broken toe, so no hiking which cut down on my opportunities.

    Taken about 3-4 pm, I really need to start going out at the right time of the day to get better shots. Oh, and I feel I really need a CPL for my 10-20 (77mm start to get expensive, and I am broke right now :wtc: ). I like the reflections in the first one, but the clouds seem to bright and takes away from the pic I think :dunno: I tried to tone it down a bit in lightroom, not a whole lot of success.

    1. I think its pelfed too, I fixed it from the original, but I think I over corrected it, what do you think?

    anyone got any good sites dedicated to landscape photog? I am starting to feel a lot of my landscapes are a new place, same overall look. Im looking for more creative possibilities, or tips on how to get people to really say "wow!"

    do yourself a favor and get an EXIF viewer (just google it)

    taken with a XTi, 10-20 sigma, 1. f/11, 2. f/9, both 1/200 SS, ISO 100

    in LR I used the "boost" preset that I found somewhere on this forum, added some more recovery and contrast on the first one.

    Originals aren't much different, just a little "dull" I can PM them to you if you are really interested

    The best landscapes I ever see are on Fred Miranda in the Landscapes section.
