Flowing Dreams by Dee-T Flowing Dreams by Dee-T
Kirkjufell
Iceland

This was one of the last shots of a beautiful evening just outside Grundarfjordur when the weather finally began to clear. The previous 2 days had been washed out with solid rain. I used manual blending of 4 exposures and a photomatix produced image in this one. In coming weeks, I hope to present a video on Iceland flicking through every picture I took there in 2010 case people were curious!

This is an example of the 'photoreel' videos I've been working on : from Nepal in this case

way too oversaturated but amazing photo anyway.

thank you for stating your preference - saturation rather than natural worked better for me personally for this image :)

no problems, the shot is a pure masterpiece in composition and weather conditions/light. for my taste such procession/saturation works better in abstract/intimate landscapes which this photo isn't of that kind. but here on DA it looks like all those top landscape photographers fashion oversaturation massively. for me it's just a trend that shouldn't be followed blindly.

true, and neither should over vignetting (ala peter eastway), excessive sharpening, black and white for black and white's sake, HDR for HDR's sake (look everyone, I took 10 exposure to get this shot), SOOC as a bragging right (look everyone, I did nothing to this picture) etc. there's a place for everything but my current mood is to keep things happy and vibrant :)

You got som crazy beautiful pics here.
What do you do with them in PS?
Im having huge problems with PS RAW. The pictures are extremely dark when I open them there. Not like in the camera or the picture app I view them in and I cant figure it out. I can boost light in RAW of course but it ruins the colors. So annoying.
