    Soeraksan National Park

    Sharing some images from our recent trip to Soeraksan National Park, Korea. My wife and I went there specifically for the Fall and we were not disappointed although the weather was fickle. The first day was a heavy drizzle, the second day the sun was playing hide-and-seek while the third day it was bright in the morning and gloomy from noon.

    Any comments and/or critique are welcome.

    Steven, these are very nice! The colors in #2 & #3 are wonderful and I especially like the composition in #3. Looks like you saw some beautiful places on your trip. Thanks for sharing them here.

    Very nice shots... Fickleness of weather is often a problem in some geographic areas during the fall season. I always carry an OPTECH Rainsleeve in the rear pocket of my shooting vest but, if I were going to an area that I am sure it will be raining (like the Hoh Rain Forest of Washington State's Olympic Peninsula) I will bring better protection and will use a Kata 702 Raincover.

    Hi Steven, what kind of feedback are you looking for? The reason I ask is that the compositions on these are very good but the processing appears to be 'muddy' on my monitor as if tonemapping was applied to non-HDR images. I probably need to calibrate my monitor to see them clearly.

    Wonderful compositions and scenery! The post-processing is highly stylized, if that's a reasonable way to describe it, so not everyone will like it. I like the muted tones in the first image but wish the vignetting in the top corners was not there. Perhaps it was caused by the lens?

    thanks for dropping by and offering your feedback. Since I started shooting, I have struggled with composition. I am pleased that my composition is getting some semblance.

    Frank Miller, I am looking for any feedback as a viewer see the pixs example; colors, tones, ok, not ok, cropping

    Hi Steven,

    I think my favourite is #4.
    Do you also have a fast shutter speed 'frozen drops' version?

    The composition is good on all as others have said.

    Cheers,

    Bobo, Dave thanks for those encouraging words

    Dave, since you mentioned it ... I don't have a faster shutter speed on #4, It's one of those moments again when I am only concentrating on getting one effect and forget to shoot a 'normal' photo

    Could I ask why you want to see a faster shutter speed of #4? Is there something which I do not know? Maybe I could learn something new from your reply. Thanks
