Craig, I always have a laptop on trips. Even Kenya, Tanzania, Peru. I look at my shots of the day, do some processing/editing. Enough to feel my shooting is working out all right. My heavy editing is done at home, though on a better monitor.

These days I don't have patience or attention span for things like writing technical articles. And others do a good job anyway.

But I do plan to chat about technical stuff in these threads. I hope some of you guys will try to bring in others to add some member critical mass to the discussions.

I will try to do my part. However, some of the questions/discussion may seem basic to some, but we all have to start somewhere...

I'm looking forward to adding some more substance myself to these threads. can't wait!

would it be difficult to post the original 5 images of that finished shot, so we could see the beginnings of it? curious how they started?

thanks

And then I used Photoshop's Shadow/Highlight to bring down the tones in the, by now, blended image's sky. That last step brought out even more of the sky color that was there all along but needed to be coaxed out. You see, the dynamic range of a sunset image, both foreground and sky, is just so great that while the human eye can see the entire range, no camera can capture it in one exposure.
