    But if you were to look into most travel shots put up here on CS, its not hard to realise that the excellent lighting is often not taken advantage of or worse, not being recognised. Good light is ever present, you just have to learn to read it that's all. Conversely, adverse weather conditions can also provide good opportunities if the pair of eyes behind the camera know how to work with it.

    wow.. Nice insights!! I feel the same sentiments of the TS about how such landscape pictures can look so fantastic! Sure inspires us to work harder (behind the camera and on the laptop!) =D
    Shoot with your heart, not for greed/ego..

    Been introduced to fred miranda forum and saw this guy's photos (Marc Adamus) and felt like throwing my camera away.

    Although he was kind enough to share his process, it was quite vague and high level discussion. Blur sotong like me (who only took up digital for 5 months) cannot decode his language.

    any masters in CS who can shed some light on how he could have processed such images?
    apart from the obvious like use of GND (guessing it's singh ray), how could he have gotten so much:
    - details
    - highlights in the shadow regions
    - sharpness even when it is viewed small on screen (i have loaded pictures in CS gallery and they immediately degraded in terms of viewing online)

    please do not get into discussion of composition/ too much photo-shopped/ should he or not, etc. let this be purely a discussion of techniques.

    thanks for viewing, and especially for contributing.
    Did he tell you the exact filters/polarizers that he was using ? I believe he is using "creative polarizers".

    hi, didn't see your post. no, he did not tell me in person. i read it in 1 of his web post. he shares his process quite freely.

    The photos in discussing was done by a Photoshop god....!

    I'm not too sure on the terms used to describe the processes, but could he have taken several shots of the same thing and blend them in separately to create that mystical effect? Kind of like how HDR is processed in PS. His photos has a lot of depth to them and I'm sure the real thing doesn't look as spectacular as that (weather and colour wise).
    Enlighten me...
