Sunrise in Khopra
« on: November 04, 2017, 03:25:34 am »

Hi all,

I'm new to LuLa, and I saw most landscape photos here focusing on US and Europe. I'd like to share my photo of Khopra, the best place in Lower Annapurna (Nepal) for landscape photography.

I took it in last April. Hope it will inspire you guys to go there.

This is pretty saturated, but the view is nice. Looking forward to more from Asia.

Welcome to LuLa!

One of our members here, who often shoots in Asia and comes back with equally saturated colors, remarked that the market there seems to prefer it that way.

Thanks for your comments. To be honest, after apply Velvia preset in LR, I have to desaturate a little. I think it's LR problem to read RAF file from Fuji.

The most important thing to realize with post-capture processing is that you, not the app, should be in control of the output. So, whether the photo is over-saturated or not is entirely dependent on you, the processor. If you like it this way, great! Go for it! But if you, too, think its over-saturated, then dial down the saturation more.

Personally, Im sceptical of Presets as they impose someone elses vision on my work. My advice is not to rely on Presets except as a I wonder what this will look like? way of learning. You should still, and perhaps more so, be very critical of what the Preset does and whether or not it matches your vision for the photo. This puts the power of processing back into your hands, where it belongs.

Thanks Terry. Since I switched to Fuji I was a bit lost in its Velvia preset (maybe I missed my old days of Velvia films). I don't know why but using LR for Fuji raw files I couldn't get the true colors that I used to get with Nikon raw files, or my post-processing skills weren't good enough. But after your valuable advice, I'm sure to change my method again.

Many thanks.

As a former user of Velvia 50 slide film, I have no qualms about its colour palette for landscapes. I like the photo very much.

Very nice shot. Indeed, it looks like Velvia with a polarized filter ;-)
