Time to throw all graduated ND filters on eBay before people realize they're now completely worthless

Andras,

actually not

The scene has great DR and your image is great and has great contrast too. Perfect. It's just not challenging the camera though.

What is challenging the camera is when you compress the high DR into a low dynamic range output. I won't recomend with your gorgeous lake photo.

Nevertheless, I did it to illustrate what I mean. Bad photo treatment, great camera performance. Of course, I'll delete the photo if you don't want to see it abused

Thanks for Your comment! It is very informative and I ask You NOT to delete your version as the main point of this forum is to exchange knowledge and information!

I also thought about a similar version but I prefered the darker one..as it looks nicer as You also pointed out.

My creative photography teacher always reminds us to "kill your darlings".

To Planedriver: I've seen some nice shots from you. Keep 'em coming.

the dynamic range is indeed scary.



(i didn't take the k20d along to compare directly, but i used to need at least 3 braketed shots to achieve the same in similar conditions, iirc).
