Here are a few more processed images from my week up at Bark Lake, near Minden, Ontario. These were made one morning when conditions were pretty much ideal for landscape photography: little or no breeze with wonderful side- and backlighting.
All are shot with a Nikon D800e with Nikon primes (24mm ƒ2.8 for the first, 105mm Micro-Nikkor for 2 and 3) on a tripod with mirror lock-up, ƒ11 at ISO 100. They were processed in LR4.2 with heavy use made of negative Highlights and positive Shadows to reduce the contrast (reducing the Contrast adjustment made the mid-tones too flat, so I opted for this alternative). I also added 20 to 40 in Clarity but 0 to -10 in Vibrance as vibrance increases with the Tone settings I used.
As I am finding with the D800e (especially at ISO 100), minimal Sharpening (+50) and 0 Noise Reduction gives beautifully smooth tones. There is no noise and no pixellation at 100% pixel peeping! And the dynamic range - wow!
