Rays of Light 3 by ldo Rays of Light 3 by ldo
This is probably the best Rays of Light picture I have.

This was taken today at the local park. Shot in RAW, some processing in Capture One pro ( white balance adjustment was used to create the blue colour) then some processing in PS ( dodge/burn, USM) then saved. The rays of light are not fake btw.

this is a great shot, in my opinion it is very slightly on the dark side, but it is really nice. I especially like the silouhette of the horizon. Nice work! =D

I always want to capture rays of light, but I can't do it very well.
Nice rich deep dark blue tones. Impressive colors.
Well done photo I think.

...and people say digital cant capture highlight detail. bullshit I say.

good shot. I like the comp&color. the horizon is weird because I can see little smudgey marks.. possibly from burning? I dont know. just something to improve on, in an image that already works.

I'm not keen on the halo around some of the trees, though.
