Summon the Mountain by JanPusdrowski Summon the Mountain by JanPusdrowski
Summon the Mountian

Another shot from Enzingerboden, It was a very great place.
For futher information about Enzingerboden and that area check out the other shots, there is a more detailed text.


Some other shots from Austria:


Update info: New editing approach. I also changed the WB in this shot to get lusher colors and a "bluer" sky. Furthermore I was able to remove the lifts on the mountaintop, which is a huge improvement, I guess. Hope you like it!
Update 2: Frameless and balanced sky!

First of all, this is an amazing shot! My critique will not contain anything around technical errors, because I don't think I can find any, but rather what I might have tried to do differently. Lets get the obvious out of the way, first:
The framing is absolutely spot on, managing to work perfectly with the balancing act of the diagonal lines created by the features' edges. You chose to go full wide with this shot, which gave you more space to feature the sky and the rocks. The HDR component of the shot is subtle, yet very effective. It's wonderful when HDR doesn't look like HDR and at the same time manages to keep the sharpness of a single exposure.
The white of the clouds is pure white and the darkest shadows are pure black, which adds to the clarity of the picture, as does the overall contrast.
The colours are vibrant and natural, but I might have selected to have the white balance just a click colder.
You know that there couldn't really exist many things to complain about in this picture, but here goes nothing:
If the clouds weren't moving too fast, you could have chosen to use a dark filter and a significantly lower shutter speed for your two exposures. In case the clouds added too much of a motion blur, perhaps you could have taken another couple of shots with a lower shutter speed just for the water. The resulting vague motion blur of water streams is quite popular in dA...
And I'm spent.... I really don't have anything else to suggest. Sure, it's not the most original work you'll find around, but that's not the point to start with. The resulting image here nears perfection.
What do you think?

Wohl die bisher imposanteste Aufnahme deiner -Serie. Etwas klein vllt, aber sonst echt nicht schlecht.

Wow great shot mate! I love how the sky is so clear and such a level exposure with the rest of the shot, colours are wonderful also. It's funny, I take 2 bracketed exposures 1 0EV 1 -1EV but the because of the K-5's amazing sensor, somehow I can pull the same amount of detail out of the underexposed shot from just fill light is astonishing as the standard exposure, couldn't do that with my old camera, or even my mates 5D Mk2 which is like $1000 more expensive.
Still good to take 2 anyway just for the little bit of extra detail.

thanks for the comment, I used to 2 shots to get this deep blue sky, it's very interesting what a pol-filter can do on 2000m :)

Yeah looks wicked mate =D
I can't use CPLs unfortunately with my wide lens, but I have one for the 18-55mm, I really love the colour rendition through pol filters =)
