    Bison at Home on the range

    Today at the Bison Range. Rain for the past few days so new snow on the peaks of the Mission Mountains. The roundup starts next month so the herds were in a pasture close to the road.

    Hi Dave,

    Great part of the world you come from – Big Sky Country – so they say. I flew into Great Falls, Montana many years ago, hired a car and drove over Bear Tooth Pass towards Yellowstone NP. I have very fond memories of that trip.

    Personally I would like to have seen the top of the bison’s head and also the bottom of his beard. I fell it is a little cut off for my liking. I also think this could do with more sharpening.

    The others shots appear a little under-exposed on my screen. The bright sky appears to have fooled the camera’s light meter into underexposing a little. With such a dynamic range it is hard to get all areas correctly exposed.

    I am not sure what post production software you use but if you use Photoshop I detailed a technique I use here.

    Please keep this shots coming from your area, I really did enjoy Montana.

    Thanks for the ideas. No editing done except to darken the last two images. I need to take a photoshop class.
    I wanted to get the plant away form his mouth but thought better of the idea. Can't run 30+ MPH anymore.

    Hi Dave,

    Below is a copy of one of your shots. All I have done is played around with Shadows/Highlights command, which is available within a freebee download at Rawtherapee.com. No use using other techniques when you donít have them.

    I have version 2.4.1 but some here at CiC have been moving to Version 3. This is still in development mode. There is a pdf download that explains how to use it. You can also do contrast and sharpening with this freebee.
