    Excellent, excellent shot! The rocks in the foreground alone excite me, but when combined with that perfect reflection and light and background.. wow.. just wow! Very curious what f/stop you used for the shots (I’m assuming you bracketed with the ss?)? Wonderful work. One thing I really appreciate about this shot is that it comes off with the PERFECT exposure but doesn’t appear overprocessed… just the right amount of HDR! Well done!

  • Hi Murph. The f/stop was 20…I was using a tripod on this one,and tended to go for longer exposures when autobracketing (to get a better depth) which on my camera comes out at +/-0.7 (Most cameras give a wider choice but with the Sony it seems to tone down the HDR,which I like). It was before I realised you could force the exposure values in Photomatix…lol.Thanks for the great comment.

    I thought the DoF here was looking on the deeper side! It’s very relieving to me to see that shots taken at such a small aperture can still come out looking tack sharp!

  • I was lucky.I was still learning what the camera did at that time.The weather and scenery helped
