Yosemite Valley

Photo Information
Inspired by the image on page 11 of this week's AP magazine, I thought I really needed to re-visit a shot taken in May last year.

It's a brave person who makes B&W images in Ansel Adams country.
Some good tones here & I love the way the clouds echo the land form.
The FG pine trees let this down a bit as that area looks quite flat. I would be inclined to mask the area & increase contrast there.

Regards, Ian.

There is a lot of contrast in the original. I actually processed two JPEGs from the RAW so that I could bring out some detail in the FG trees using a photoshop graduated filter mask. Unfortunately, the trees are so underexposed there isn't much more I could pull out of them. I'll have another go though
