Yes. Just need the file link.

Edit: Okay, now I sse it.

I love it! But you should really invest in a 77mm ND filter. It would have been a much sharper image if it wasn’t shot at f22.

Where was that shot? How did you get up there? :smiley:

It could be shot at F8 by just increasing the shutter speed, no need ofr a ND filter

Impressive shot!

Then he wouldn’t have got this motion blur in the clouds.

My take, DT 3.5 git master

I chose f22 because i wanted the longest shutterspeed possible, i do not have an nd filter (yet) and i definitely would have used one if i did because a long exposure would have made it even more magical i think

Yeah, I know.

Thanks for sharing.

A light touch, white balance was the only real departure. In rawproc:

With Filmulator.

You really nailed the ETTR, so it only needed the tiniest smidge of highlight recovery for the red channel.
