Retreat by IvanAndreevich Retreat by IvanAndreevich
The 2012 landscape calendar is now available! Go check it out :D

A third of the way is still covered by snow in September :D It's an amazing year. The cloud on the left started off as a jet trail, and over half an hour drifted around 20 km, slowly transforming into a long and much wider cloud.

That is a ranger's hut. In the winter, it's covered with snow completely and you have to dig down to access the second floor. 6 meters (18 feet) of snow is common here. I wonder how much they are paid to spend the summer there :)

Location: Elfin Lakes, Garibaldi Provincial Park, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm + Tiffen Polarizer.
Technique: Photomatix Pro 4.0 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAW AEB bracketing +1.5, 0, -1.5 exposures.

Has this been touched up with Photoshop? /:
Reply
:iconrickondraw:
Rickondraw Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011
3 photos with different exposures are merged with photomatix, and later touched up in photoshop i presume.
its in the description sort off.

hdr is sort off touching up,
you are using things that are in the photo, you are not really increasing colors or changing things.
you are bringing out the detail in the darkest area's and lightest, at least that's what i understand about HDR photography.

if im wrong any please correct me ^__^

It has it all in it.
The clear water, the colorfull grass, the mountains, the snow, a bit of trees and even some kind of house.
