    Yet another look at that great peace of land in the Dolomites - Santa Maddalena here just after a cloudy sunrise. Please share your thoughts and ideas about how could I improve anything in that scene DRJ_3517-2-copy.jpg

    So very cool Levy! What an awesome scene and I sure don’t see anything that could improve upon this.

    Seriously sweet image Levy - the only thing I can think of to do with this image is to print it. Large.

    This is serious nit-picking Levy but the top cloud just to the right of centre looks "blown" probably only in the red channel and it may be just a change to sRGB for posting as sRGB has a very restricted range of red/ orange colours. Oh!, almost forgot, beautiful image. Ken

    Hey Levy,

    You caught some fantastic light over these mountains, and you have a gorgeous image. There isn't much to say in the improvement category, just tiny nits. The cloud that Ken mentioned is one, and the only other thing I noticed is what appears to be light haloing around the clouds separating the darker tree covered hills transitioning to the lighter rock of the mountain. It might be too much clarity or from blending.

    You 'r right Ken. I have issues with the sRGB export and I can't anticipate where it will be overexposed. It just a trial and error iterations I guess. Thank you for this

    Well you caught me man. I hope no one will mention this because if there is one thing I hate in editing is dealing with halos. Actually in this photo there is a mist between the darker hills and the mountains so it looks like halos. there is no blending almost no clarity. For sure there is editing in there but I don't think its a halo but maybe its just because I hate it so much. Thank you So much for this Tim

    Another great shot from the Dolomites! You need to be getting paid by the Italy Tourist Bureau :)

    Really nice -- lots going on there from the haze over the Dolomites to the buildings (is that a lodge?) in the foreground and that wonderful light.
