Misty Mountains pt.1 (gallery)

  • These photos were taken a few days ago after hours of rain! I really like fog, it can turn “boring” landscapes into so much more! These were taken using the Sigma 70-300mm, so the original photos have very low contrast. After processing them using Camera Raw, Silver Efex, Analog Efex and Photoshop, they turn into something that i’m proud of! πŸ™‚ The only problem i have with this lens is the low contrast, but it’s very sharp! As you can see, the branches of the trees are clearly visible and everything has quite a bit of detail. It’s a cheap lens, but it does the trick, after a bit of editing! πŸ˜€

    I can’t help but think about the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit when i’m editing photos with fog and mountains, it just pops in my mind and won’t go away until i’m done!
    “Far over the Misty Mountains rise
    Leave us standing upon the height…”

    Hope you enjoy, and more to come! πŸ˜€ This is only the first part of the series πŸ˜‰

    1. Wonderful series (looking forward to the next instalment) and the B&W adds a timelessness to them. Had a quick look at your front page photos – they are my kind of image so of course loved them all πŸ˜€

      • I will try to upload them tomorrow, still have a bit of editing to do! πŸ™‚ I edited these in B&W mostly because of the low contrast the original photos had, i tried editing one in color but the colors got really messed up! so B&W with a little bit of a green tone creates an atmosphere that i like! πŸ™‚
        Thank you very much! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you love them, more to come! πŸ˜€

      • These mountains are beautiful when seen with our eyes but not so much when photographed. but add a little bit of fog and rainy clouds, and they look completely different! πŸ™‚ Straight out of the Lord of the Rings! πŸ˜€ I keep saying that they could have filmed it here lol! Thank you! πŸ˜€
