Sunrise Rock
« on: November 06, 2017, 11:55:09 pm »

I kept looking at this rock 100 yards away while I was shooting the sunrise, and I knew I had to walk over there to see what I could do with it.  Just when I got there, the sun was about to disappear behind the cloud bank, and the streak of light was right there.  I just moved back and forth to line it up on the rock.  Hand held, and darn glad to get it.

Not sure which I prefer.

Sony A7ii with Loxia 35mm.

Good capture!
I prefer the second, the clouds add a lot.

Good light, but a tad over sharpened to my taste.

I agree. I also agree with Paolo: both look rather over-sharpened and there are very marked haloes around the rocks in the second, which distract from the beauty of the scene.

I'm joining the critics about sharpening but with a bit more time to rework those shots they could be fantastic.

Also agree about heavy-handed sharpening and halos.

Thanks.  I donít know much about processing.  Hardly use Photoshop.  Never use Lightroom.

Lightroom is the single most important editing and image management package I use. 

For Photoshop, look at the free tutorials at phlearn.com

Sometimes NIK plugins.  Sometimes Macphun HDR.  Recently Macphun Luminar.

Much better. Just lighten the shadows a touch or balance the f/g and sky and your golden!

I'll make another stab at it.  Using Macphun Aurora HDR Pro.
