Vast by Thomas-Koidhis Vast by Thomas-Koidhis
Completely reprocessed this image. I like it better this way. It'd be better to say I processed it more lighthandedly haha..Still, did a few contrast adjustments and color tweaks on the RAW. Completely from scratch though, I restitched it from the original 4 pieces.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-18
Vast by ~OctoberLife Sometimes you see shots that really don't need any words to describe them, and I think this one is one of those kinda of shots, a wonderful image, that really sets the bar for beauty! ( Suggested by Rom3o and Featured by kkart )

eeeh, I somehow have missed that one, don't know how the first edit was, but this is definitely beautiful. I will sound funny to say congratulations on your DD after all this time but still :w00t:

Haha that was a long time ago though, its okay it's all the same..:P Back when I first took this I was just getting out of this HDR phase I was in for a while when I was pretty much just starting photography, and so the picture was pretty heavily edited and looked tone mapped and all that...My photography has kind of matured? i think, and looking back I didn't really like the way it looked, so I kind of gave it a rebirth with some more modest processing. :D

lol, I guess most people go through that overprocessing phase when they start, but it's what you said, as we mature we like it more natural and subtle! After all when nature has done such a terrific job in painting the sky, what more can you do? :thumbsup:

Good to see your deviations, love your photography and editing skills.

I like it how the snow is so blue and that the sky is also a wonderful shade of blue, yet that streak of red in the sky really captivates me. The shading on the snow is so soft but it makes the grass stand out.

Congratulations on the DailyDeviation.

great picture. i think the deep oranges are slightly over-saturated, leaving sharp edges to the clouds, but overall its a great photo.

:iconthomas-koidhis:
Thomas-Koidhis Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2009
Yeah I've been having problems with saturation on DA...My monitor isn't calibrated perfectly and I use firefox, so my saturation and contrast look different from computer to computer. I'll bump it down a few levels
Reply

MatthewPaver Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm in the same boat. haven't bought a calibrator yet and use nothing but firefox so i have no clue how my pictures actually look

Don't know if you've used it before, but the vibrancy control in lightroom and i 'think' photoshop works like saturation but has a more subtle effect. that might work better for you because saturation always blows out areas and can cause graininess.
