|After reading your 'selling points' for shooting in raw, i visited your profile page and saw these pic. These are the type of pic i love to shoot as well. Don't know whether you shot this in RAW but presume it would be an ideal candidate for RAW. (water, highlights on stone and very light sky, although not yet 255 value sky yet). I have ruined many good shots of darkish scenes (lots of trees and so on) because there was some light sky peeking through that came out as 255 value. Hmmm, i believe we discussed this on a thread some time ago abt graduated nd filters, which i haven't purchased yet. What RAW help overcoming such problems or would a grad. nd filter still be called for? Anyway, i never have a better idea for what scenes it would be definitely worthwhile to shoot in RAW. For other type of shoots i may stay in superfine in order to save a lot of processing time. Does this sound about right?
Secondly, would a grad ND filter actually help with this particular shot since the light sky covers only a small corner of the image???
Replying to my questions here on your pic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Anyway, nice shot. You might try to darken upper, uppermost greens with hue/sat. Alternatively, you might consider cropping off just about the top of the rocks. It would make for a stronger, more serene image.
