Challenge: From On High (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix HS20EXR
Location: Mt, Buninyong overlooking Yendon, Vic. Australia
Date: Jan 24, 2013
Aperture: 5.6

We climbed up to the public viewing platform on the Mt. Buninyong fire watcher's lookout tower. There is another level above which is occupied by the fire lookout. The atmosphere was blue hazy from smoke from severe bushfires which are burning in the south east of the state (long way away). The dark specks in the paddock are cattle. The dark specks in the dam are remnants of drowned trees.

You ARE high - and far away, too. What a vista!

A bit off PP oomph would of helped this to pop, as is it's a bit dull.

Heck of a vista. Looks a little flat to me, but a nice image nonetheless.7

Seems like this is missing out on the low range of the histogram. Maybe increasing the contrast a bit could help.

HDR styling? Doesn't seem necessary on this image. Maybe my eye is just picking that up.

Beautiful perspective. Haze or smoke in the distance, but the detail in the landscape is wonderful. Love the cattle. Looks hot. 8
