For Austria Group:
The reflection of the Ötscher Tops on the cameralense of a friend of mine.
It was taken inside the Ötscher Gräben which are also known as the “Austrian Grand Canyon”. It is a great leisure, walking, wandering area in spring, summer & fall :D

For Photography 101 and all others who are interested…
I have to admit, I was very surprised by the clear outcome, especially since I did mess up the ISO a bit ;c) …
Eitherway, the high ISO forced me to close the aparture a bit wider (though F4 isn’t all too wide). But that provided the focused spot on the lense’s reflection while still maintaining a relatively clear background.
The picture turned out to be over exposed by only half a point, and I was able to change that in post processing.
There was a bit of a flare on the lense, which I was able to reduce with Photoshop’s Adjustment layers, Curves. I filled the layer black and reduced the colouring with the help of the colour sample tool, to closely match the surroundings. All this I learned with the help of my BF (who is quite the PS whiz and who showed me those tricks :c) … )
Apart from that, there was no layer merging involved. It’s one picture, just the way it was out of the camera :c)
