    Welcome from me too ! It's a nice scene but I think it would benefit from some more pp. If you look at the histogram for this image, you will see that it is under-exposed. So I would suggest adjusting the white level and then enhancing the shadows. The darker areas may be a bit noisy then but at least you will be able to see them.

    According to the Exif info, this shot was taken in Aperture Priority mode. Given the nature of the shot, it surprises me that the camera didn't do a better job of getting the exposure right.

    Cheers Dave

    Since i don't know how to access the histogram or the EXIF data for this image i'm gonna stick my neck out with an observation; it appears to me from the exposure that the camera was metered at the scene's vertical midpoint; if it was metered lower on the scene the mid ground & upper ground would have been far brighter than what's seen here, but the lower section would have been better exposed; of course, this can be affected by the metering mode the user selects: evaluative tries to get a broader consensus of the scene, while spot selectively meters a small area.I would like to know how to access the EXIF data, if Dave would be so kind to inform me, thanks Robert

    Robert there are various ways of accessing the EXIF data (if it's there - which it is in this case). I use a freeware program called Panda iEXIF which allows you to view the EXIF data whilst in Internet Explorer. Alternatively, right click on the image and Save Picture As to your hard drive. Then you can open it up in Phototshop or whatever and see the EXIF data and the Histogram.

    PS This shot may have even been metered on the sky.

    Cheers Dave

    Well in this case I would certainly have metered for the sky and let everything else fall into the shadows; which can then be recovered with an adjustment layer.

    But I like the rather dark foreground.

    Hi Julien

    I found time to have a go at getting some more detail out of your image and came up with the following. I hope you don't mind. In the end, of course, the appearance you want with your image is up to you. I think it's a very nice image.

    Incidentally I just noticed that you had EV set to -4.67, this would explain the under-exposure. Perhaps you wanted it that way ?

    Cheers Dave

    Hi,
    I like it very much.I tried to keep the mystery of the early morning so I illuminated only a little the right and left side of the foreground then I illuminated the middle-ground and turned it toward red.In the end I darkened the left side of the sky.

    Thank you very much for your comments,it's so important to me to learn more...This image was create special under-exposure,to emphasize the mystery.But your opinions is very important to me.
