Victoria Bay : Reprocessed by hougaard Victoria Bay : Reprocessed by hougaard
I've been meaning to reprocess this for a long while now. The colours were a bit off in the 1st version. This one is closer, but still has some unwanted shadow magentas. I blended the fg from 2 exposures to get a thinner looking mist.

I drove 4000km to get to altitudes of over 2300m with decent mountains and spent sunrises in sub zero winds on mountain slopes, but the best two shoots I had was along the N2 highway while driving to and from the mountain areas, just getting lucky with light. It feels as if I am destined to shoot waterscapes:( So sick of them.

definately prefer this one, although i can't quite exactly remember what bugged me about the last one, but I remember that it wasn't quite as perfect as you usually get it...

i really like how the rocks stand out now, the highlights on them are gorgeous.

good work dude!

Thanks Man. The other one was very magenta and the sky had a very weird luminosity. It was a very weird sky to start with. Those bright cirrus colours smeared with the exposure. I did a lot of color manipping in raw to get to this.

"So sick of them" I could smack you for that. I'd give almost anything to get some shots of the ocean. But I see what you're saying. I'm sick of looking at a lake, yet I'm sure there's someone somewhere that for whatever reason, would love to be near a lake. It's not always that easy being content with what we have, even if what we have is beautiful. Photographers need variety, darn it!

Better luck in the mountains next time although I don't think I've seen them yet so I expect those will make me equally sick =P
