Rugged Nature by da-phil Rugged Nature by da-phil
I found this place during a hike to the Munkebu hut close to Moskenes on the Lofoten island Moskenesøy in Norway.

It's fascinating how the flora & fauna changes in different environmental conditions. At geographical latitudes like the Lofoten and at heights 600m above sealevel you see moor-plants like this.

You're most welcome! What editing did you do, if any? It looks like you took it from monochrome to colour

it's a single color frame, most things happened in RAW conversion, where i recovered some highlights, rotated the picture (wasn't even due to freehand shooting), applied sharpening and chose a suiting white balance.
editing was done in gimp, only little color adjustments and contrast enhancements were made, that's it ;)

Hey, beautiful landscape! Der rot/grün Kontrast gefällt mir sehr gut. Ich würde hier aber absolut einen Panoramaanschnitt bevorzugen. Dann würde der störende Dreck rechts nicht mehr so ins Gewicht fallen. Auf weiße Himmel kann ich natürlich auch verzichten. Vlt. kannst da noch einen Verlauf reinzaubern, falls du die Informationen noch aus der Datei rausquetschen kannst. Außer du hast noch eine dunklere Belichtung... Ansonsten, good on you Phil ;-).

danke dir stefan! hmm, beim panoramaanschnitt würde sich leider die wirkung der schönen diagonale der felsen verlieren. aber der himmel ist echt ein drama... ich habe viele zuschnitte ausprobiert, aber die kompromisse beim wegschneiden des (fast) weißen himmels waren mir letztendlich nicht vertretbar, deshalb habe ich ihn einfach so gelassen. für den kontrastumfang in dieser aufnahme hat mir eine belichtung ausgereicht, aber der himmel hatte an diesem tag einfach keine zeichnung und dieses dunklere grau hat mir nicht gefallen, deshalb habe ich den himmel beim erhöhen des kontrasts nicht maskiert und nu isser halt hellgrau :D

Finde ich nicht. Ich würde links und rechts etwas wegnehmen, so dass das V noch gut erkennbar ist. Aber bei mir käm sowieso keine nichts anderes in Frage und dein Ausschnitt ist sicherlich auch gut :-).
Manchmal wünschte man sich, man könnte die Sonne nehmen und Sie so platzieren wie im Studio... ;-)
