Es Pontàs
« on: November 01, 2017, 12:42:03 pm »

One from my recent holiday-trip. I happened to have a hotel just few hundred meters away from this arch, so I could go there more than one time, without driving. I found out, it's a little late in season to get real good light. The arch is facing to the north more or less, so there was just a little light from the side just before sunset. One month earlier would have been better, I guess. I'm just starting figuring out those things. Here's a long time  exposure. I did few. Slowly learn; and also realize long time exposures seem to be what HDRs were some years ago. Or is it just me seeing those more and more frequently, lately? Seen some in the tourist shops during the holiday. Well, here's one more of those. Was fun, anyway. There are only few spots on the edge of the cliff you can access easily and safely to get a more or less usable view. Brave photographers or those with climbing abilities might have been able to go to an place even lower, I was just going down to a plateau maybe 2 meters and scratched my knee, doing so ... well. At least there was a horizontal surface I could place my mini-tripod on, which turned out to be stable enough, fortunately. I didn't get rid of/ retouched the big rock in the foreground, some viewers elsewhere suggested this, but I like it to be there, somehow giving support to the left part of the arch, which is a bit dark. What Du you think?

I would keep the rock but burn it a little until it is slightly darker than the sunlit area on the right side of the arch.

Nice image!

I've seen this before in a different post, and I still love it.
