A new GR and a little tone mapping...

Man, I love this little jewel of a camera. I took a few simple landscape shots today and applied a little tone mapping for effect. It really adds a different look. The GR really excels.

In my view such images often look overworked, and such a heavy sky does not sit well over a bright ground. A dark and foreboding sky darkens the ground.

I have taken the liberty of editing to show what I mean.

I darkened the ground, reduced its brightest highlights reduced its contrast, then finally lightened the overall image.
