Moody Morning View - Coronet Peak Road, Queenstown New Zealand


Morning View From The Coronet Peak Road, Queenstown

Earlier this week I wrote a post expounding the benefits of the new and improved  Lightroom 4 Shadows Slider.  This powerful tool 'opens up' shadow areas in images like this, unlocking a full range of tonality.

However, sometimes it I think it is nice to let the shadow chips fall where they may - this photo is a good example of that in my opinion.

This is an in camera jpeg from the Canon 5dmkii  and it is completely untouched by post-processing.  Why? because I like it just as it is.

You don't always have to 'work' your images - trust your artistic instincts.

Anyone else feel this way sometimes?

Comments welcomed :-)
