Morning Calm

Morning Calm

Early Morning walk in the Drakensburg, South Africa exposed some lovely scenery. This picture of a lake at Dragon's Peak takes me to a serene place.

Lovey shot, if I was to be annoyingly picky, maybe a bit more detail in the clouds.

Very nice. Really it transmits sensation to me of calm and tranquillity

Very nice landscape works well in b&w

Thanks for the comments guys. Much appreciated. I do agree that a little more cloud detail would have gone a long way to enhance this shot. Live and learn I guess.

You can get a ton of drama from the clouds with a very small photosop tweak. With the Burn tool set to shadows and 8% exposure and a fairly large brush size drag it accross the clouds and the shadows will come right out. Just be sure to do it on a copy as this is really a very good image as is!

Agree with bailbr here, only I'd use a different technique. Roughly select the sky using the lasso tool. Set a reasonable feather, then adjust levels. But anyway its pretty stunning shot.

stunning.. as for the clouds... I'd probably mess with the levels and curves. Everyone is different.

Great shot.

For the clouds a good way to bring back detail is to make a copy of the layer and change the blend mode to Multiply. This will darken it. Add a mask to the layer and reveal only the clouds.
