Skies Of Color by kkart Skies Of Color by kkart
Captured this Fall on the shores of Lake Estes in Estes Park, Colorado. This is one of those sunrises we didn't think was going to produce anything and then all the sudden...BAM! About 10 seconds on the exposure to smooth the sky and water out some to give a soft quality about it. I actually completely forgot about this shot until I started going through folders in Lightroom today. Found some others as well. As I said, I am very behind in processing lol

A glass of good whisky and a good cigar, even if it would be cold i would sit there and wait for such a sunrise. I wish I were there (hate living in a city and now owning a car to go to such places - crap :( )

Noisy? I am not seeing any noise in this at all. Also I use Lightroom 3 and Noise Ninja which is way better than Neat Image. It's iso 200 so I am not especially sure where you are getting that there is noise.

I really like the sky in this, but to be honest (please don't take it personal John) the image itself does not do much for me. The two foreground rocks are a nice touch to offset the reflection of the sky. On my monitor the scene looks a bit noisy in the sky and water, not sure what your choice of ISO was or if it is just from the processing. I also see some fringing along the ridge of the mountains and hills. Something I do to reduce noise especially in water is just take the blur tool and brush over the areas that seam noisy at low opacity and work into it until it looks neat and close to noise free without losing too much texture. Again it could be my monitor too although it is calibrated. It certainly has potential, but for me it is not up to par with much of your work.

The camera is but a tool and nothing more, akin to the artists paintbrush. It would be like asking a fine artist "what Linen was this painted on?". That being said, I shoot with a Sony a550 and this was captured using a Minolta 18-200mm lens, wireless release, tripod, ND8, Grad ND and CPL filters.
