    Default serenity

    Taken at MacRitchie Reservoir. The overcast sky made the scene looked drab. All comments appreciated.

    wow sharp pics...

    i'm wondering how come such pics the green always comes out so dark? i suppose if u exposed the trees properly then the sky would be blown out, or else it could be the shadows?

    great depth on the third pic!

    I used an ND filter + graduated gray ND8 or 4 to lessen the sky brightness. It did bring out some details in the otherwise white-washed sky. In some shots this is apparent as the reflection is brighter than the sky As for the greens, yup due to the contrast between the sky and the trees, I lost details in the trees. I also desaturate the greens a little to 'blend' into the cool/dark mood

    Maybe, at least to cut out the reflection. I'm yet to get a polariser
