Peter, nice to see some of your work again ... (I'm sorry, I don't look at the gallery nearly enough). That K50 and 18-135 combination must have been very handy on that outing. I like the peek you're giving us through the woods, and I'm also fond of overhangs. You have got good control over that sky brightness which looks natural and with highlight detail held.

Many thanks, Nigel.

I have to admit that the appearance of the sky is all down to RAW processing, which I got into thanks to your help with PDCU4, although I now do everything in Adobe RAW in PSE11.
Initially the sky appeared very flat so I took advantage of the main colour palette and reduced the Highlights then boosted whites and contrast.
It's great fun experimenting !

Thanks again

Many thanks, Maria.

This was an interesting PoV as I was looking out over a wooded valley. We were therefore able to see the tops of the trees below - not the usual view ?

Thanks again
