Indeed it is a great thread Kevin, and landscapes with teles have a special look that those posting here seem to appreciate. Your images here have a real 'sense of Europe' in them. A nice selection mate.

This image was taken with the K-1 and the Zeiss Makro Planar T* 2/100mm ZK.

Thanks Taz. Your PP is great and puts us right there in the scene. The air is quite hazy here at the moment as ffking shows the same thing I'm getting. Hopefully some crisp winter air will open up more detail by Christmas.
A few more for now...

Ooh, I assumed it was Mangart, but now I am not so confident anymore Really great composition and use of the telephoto, though

Mostly I wanted this thread to show to people that wider is not always better for landscapes, that even telephoto lenses can produce wonderful landscape photos. Wide angle just makes things.. small!

Cheers Kevin, some software includes dehaze sliders, I think LR CC does. I do most PP in On1 Photo 10 these days and their new RAW program will include a dehaze slider from memory. The haze can be good with some images, but when you don't want it a removal tool would be handy.

But haze or not there's a real sense of stepping into the English countryside with these images. I look forward to seeing some more of your landscape teles mate.

What a great idea for a thread and some amazing shots here. Both of these were taken of Busan, South Korea from essentially the same vantage point with 70mm 2.8

I use DxO Optics Pro 11 Elite, and its "ClearView" function works very well. Need to be careful not to overdo it though.

That is indeed a good combo Graham, and the golden light at that time is ideal for tele landscapes.

Here's a similar point of view towards the sun with the K5 and Zeiss 2/100mm ZK.

Enjoying all these images. The compression effect adds to the drama of a landscape shot, I think.

Sigma 170-500 at 170mm. Woolamai, Victoria.
