Challenge: Free Study 2008-09 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Challenge entries
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Brimham Rocks, North Yorkshire, England
Date: Sep 21, 2008
Aperture: f14
ISO: 200
Shutter: various
Galleries: Landscape, High Dynamic Range (HDR)
Date Uploaded: Sep 28, 2008

Six exposures tone-mapped in Photomatrix, imported in to CS2.
As far as I can remember - Slight shadow/highlight adjustment; Curves in soft-light blending mode at 50% opacity; dodging and burning of rocks and fore-ground; decrease luminosity of blue channel; increase saturation of red channel; High Pass at 2.4; resize; unsharp mask 56/6/5; stroke border; save for web.

Brimham Rocks are the most amazing granite rock structures. They cover an area a little under one square mile on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, which is primarily a limestone region. They really are quite bizarre.

This is such a beautiful image. I love the rich colors, the clarity, and the long DOF. I wish I could take a landscape this well.

Superb detail Sara. I also really like the variety of textures. You made the most of an overcast sky.

Nice POV achieved here, with a fair balance between foreground and background elements.

Here I was thinking this had a terrible low score based on your early comments. Glad to see it finished on the north side of 6!

It's got to be someplace in Great Britain right? To me, it's so beautiful - even if it's not someplace in Britain. The photo is excellent: 10

I love landscape shots like these that are full of different colours and rock formations, great job, wondeful clarity.

And did those feet, in ancient time.... English countryside at its best. A green and pleasant land, indeed. I like the subtle varied rich colours.
