Great cjmm 2006-09-04 17:05

Hi Pat,

Thanks a lot for the mention.

The result you got is stunning! And, after reading through the critiques and comments I am also sure that this image is much closer to what you really saw; with details both in highlights and shadows.

I do not know the technical reason, but dynamic range (and not definition) is considered to be the 'achilles heel' of digital photography. This technique may take a little more time (more or less as Kath says, I worked with the image at 100% size), but you can get very good results. Even so, bracketing comes from film days.

If you have time, you can find more tips in this page (and if you like landscapes, I guess you will enjoy the site.

Kind regards, have a nice week!
Carlos

No Pat, you don't need that, I was flattered by the mention and that was all! :)!

You can also find some useful tips on Dpreview.com (retouching forum).

Thanks Pat and saludos muy cordiales!!

The desire to better credit your suggestions came only from me. Something about your work and your note to Kath helped me fianlly use layers successfully for the first time. I expect great things from this new skill. Now I need to go out and take those bracketing photos reccommended.
Regards, Pat
