Eastern Sierra Glyph Sunset by narmansk8 Eastern Sierra Glyph Sunset by narmansk8
Well my complaining about there not being any clouds or decent light finally paid off last night!

My favorite set of petroglyphs in the volcanic tablelands at sunset.

Owens Valley, Eastern Sierra, Ca.

Have to go and find these now- I have been to some between Highway 6 and 395, but I think this is further south.

really? the sky just looks super saturated and the blending between the mountains and the sky doesnt look very natural. i'm not saying it isn't good, i love the pic. just looks over-done to me. good job though :)

This is a really nice shot that for me is spoilt by the processing in the dstance. That must be a 3 stop blend or more across the horizon, the snow is waaay too white and consequently it looks artificial. Everything else about the image is perfect
Reply
:iconnarmansk8:
narmansk8 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011
very little blending here actually. I used a 3 stop hard and a 2 stop soft gnd to balance the original exposure and double processed the raw only to blend in the yellow in the clouds just to the right of the big mountain because the detail had been blown out by a little more than a stop. I think I will go bad and try to tone down the snow and mountains slightly, But I very purposely tried to make the mountains stand out some because for me they are a essential part of this photo. They can be very easily overshadowed between the textural patterns of the petroglyphs and the vivid colors of the sunset. The glyphs, mountains, and sunset are the 3 pieces of this image and I tried to give them all equal visual weight within the composition.

Thanks alot for your opinion Alex.

okay yes GNDs then, same difference! Basically thats a 4 stop transition which is quite a lot. I understand the point about the mountains though. Ultimately its a trade off between reality and impact :)

"Ultimately its a trade off between reality and impact"

I think that is the perfect statement for what we are talking about here. I had to push the mountains a little more toward more of the impact side than reality of this image because I really wanted them to maintain visual weight throughout the composition. Thanks alot for your input alex it is greatly appreciated. :)
