Challenge: Rural Landscapes (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-30D
Lens: Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
Location: southern highlands of Iceland
Date: Aug 14, 2007
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/80
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Aug 14, 2007

This is taken at the highlands of Iceland and this mountain is one of my most favourite one in Iceland called Halldórsfell.

I used a circular polarizing filter on the lens.
I converted in Camera Raw, some color, lightness and contrast adjustments there. I used levels and hue/saturation a little in Photoshop and sharpened it.

There is a lot of movement in the photograph bringing you in and then back out. Almost a landscape reflection accenting the water reflection.
