This time last week I was in Szklarska Poręba hiking up Wysoki Kamien, I shared a panorama from the top of Kamien on Friday as part of the before and after forum. This shot was put together in the same way as that one. It was taken at the base of the rise, we had driven out of the valley to get here. This shot was taken about 5 mins into the climb.
I did have an issue taking this shot, I didn’t have my lens hood in my bag and the sun is right above the centre of the image. I used my hand to shield the lens and took the pictures one handed. I love the clouds in this shot rolling over the tip of the mountain, surprisingly the day was dry after a downpour in the night, it was a little chilly though. Good motivation to keep walking. In the distance covered in the misty haze is the Kamienna Valley.
The only real adjustments where the HDR settings and then in lightroom raising the vibrance and lowering the saturation. This sounds self defeating but vibrance raises the saturation at a stepped increase with the least saturated colours getting more saturation in the adjustment. Adjusting soley with the saturation slider all colours are raised at the same rate. In raising the vibrance you are increasing the saturation but pulling up lacking colours more and then decreasing all colours universally.
