Skies Of Winter Mornings by kkart Skies Of Winter Mornings by kkart
Season represented: Winter

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado....one thing I love to do is use long lenses and shoot landscapes with them. It is amazing what you can see using a 400mm that you would otherwise miss. Often when shooting like this, I work the composition extensively in the camera, trying to frame it exactly as I want, adjusting it accordingly so and often times just panning, looking for something that catches my eye. This was indeed the case with this shot.

Captured on my Sony a550 using a Tamron 200-400mm lens, it is an in camera HDR shot set on +3. Tripod and shutter release cable used.

:bulletred: Please see the shot on my website here how it appears sharpened correctly for web use, not allowing for the DA resizing algorithms [link]

I hope you all like it
John

Every time I see a post from you in my inbox I know I'm about to suffer from the most delicious bout of Colorado beauty induced nostalgia. I miss the place, but your photos bring it back to me a little piece at a time. Keep it up, you truely capture the pristine beauty of the place. ^.^

One might consider the clouds spoiling the view. But the clouds actually help to create a unique composition, and actually help create a sense of depth. not to mention, the clouds are part of the view!

Wonderful! I have to agree the one on your site is better. I can really see a difference in the sharpness.
Hugs,
