Brilliant as usual Colin.
Looks can be deceptive, it looks pretty warm from where I'm sitting
12 minutes? How many times did you try before being sattisfied with the result?
Brilliant indeed. My taste/eye/something just loves the treatment this tree got on Friday in 'One Tree Vista'.
Exposure calculation comes straight from my lightmeter (spot metering), but with a 5 stop offset (3 for the GND Filter, and 2 to shift the metered midtone to a highlight).
Wow, this is a really fantastic shot colin! I like it alot, great job!
