Soft Light II updated by PictureElement Soft Light II updated by PictureElement
Villnöss/Funes Valley, Dolomites, Alps, Italy

View from a small mountain trail with a wonderful vista onto this mountain range.
The sun had already disappeared behind some hills illuminating clouds and mountains with a soft rose light.
I double processed each RAW file and blended them to bring out some more details in the trees since I didn't want to dodge so much.

This is taken from the same location as [link] but from another angle. And it is a panorama of 3 verticals.

(This is one of my very favourites of the trip)


Nikon D50
DX 18-55mm
GND 0.9
f11

i use the original raw file twice adjusting the exposure of one to the shadows and one to the lights. by that i get perfect exposure for both parts. its like simulating the camera having more contrast range.
hope that helps

You're right maybe there are too much photos of that place submitted but I like them all.
Maybe it's not bad to see similar places in different light...
