    So it was a sunny, warm day yesterday, very rare in the UK these days. I haven't seen sun like this since May last year, we had an awful, awful summer. So I made the most of it and biked it up to the forest behind my estate with my mates.

    I know the lower portion of this pic is very dark. I was standing in shadow under a tree but I thought it was more important to expose the sky and trees than the ground. That's a very large puddle, just shows you how much rain we've had :wtc:

    Ideally HDR would have been good but I left my tripod at home :hs:

    I shot in Raw + jpg but I stupidly used Lightroom to import them to my hard drive and only got the jpgs. I then formatted my memory card, which I never normally do straight away :wtc: It's strange because I'm sure I checked if they were on disk first. Needless to say, I won't make that mistake again.

    So this is just a standard jpg unfortunately. Only PP was a single step of higher contrast, blacks brought up a bit and some lens vignetting in Lightroom 1.4.

    Pseudo HDR?

    yeah you change the exposure in light room and it will at least give you slightly more dynamic range.

    i think photomatix will do this automatically from a single raw.

    doesn't always turn out, but i would have like to have seen it.

    Very cool. If you didn't say you were in England I would think you took that in some backwoods part of the States here.

    I'm sure it's the fact it's sunny is why.

    Nikon D40, 18-70 f/3.5-4.5

    I'm seriously considering a Sigma 10-20mm for shooting landscapes like this. This place is a half mile from my house :bowdown:
