    Rural Scenes

    Three images taken near Kyogle.
    Nikon D80 18-135mm @105mm f5.6 1/160 sec ISO 100
    I processed these a little differently than normal
    I used an exposure layer with a gamma of 0.74 an an offset of 0.0288.
    Sharpened with a high pass filter of 1.5 and a linear light blending mode.

    Now I'm having second thoughts about the blending mode

    Though there is some haloing along the mountain edge, these look pretty good to me.

    What benefit were you expecting from the exposure layer?

    Hi Stephen, the scene is lovely but images #1 & #3 appear unnatural with that amount of difference between the sunlit and cloud shaded areas. Number 2 looks dark on my monitor. Although I can't tell what is in the sky in the way of clouds in the direction that the sun is shining from, what sky I can see appears to be almost deviod of clouds making the sunlit verses shaded areas of the image appear a tad illogical.

    Assuming that you did have both a bright sun and heavy clouds casting the shadows, It might work better if the difference wasn't so pronounced. Hope this helps!

    Frank, they were going to be B/W images, I turned off the B/W layer and fiddled trying for something different. I wasn't after natural.

    Ah! That explains it. Can't help with B&W as I am as dumb as a post in that area!
