    Picking 2 landscape pics is harder then it sounds. lol They are from Colorado. Deer is from Idaho. Just using a Nikon coolpix 16MP.

    Here are a few from me. I believe these were all taken with a Nikon point n shoot. Very early or very late is when I get the best light for pics.

    Yea it is hard to only pick 2 landscapes!









    My favorite harvest pic.

    Well, I'm attaching a couple photos for each but I'll start with the hunt photos. I'll also add what recipe I use on the photos. I think software helps boost a pictures appeal, essence and helps bring out some emotion and soul of capturing the moment.

    The Buck picture was taken way back in 2011 in Montana. Single photo with a point and shoot camera, Kodak EasyShare Z981, ISO 64, Aperture f 5.6, Shutter Speed 1/320, focal length 4.6 mm. I used software to bring out some detail, sharpness, reduce noise and remove some shadowing. I used Apple's Aperture software with Topaz Labs plug-ins, Denoise, and Photomatix Pro plugin.

    Jump to the Pig Hunt picture, yesterday April, 26 2014. I have a bit better camera now that gives me some better flexibility. I always shoot in RAW now. Canon 60D, with a ISO 100, Aperture f 22, Shutter Speed 1/5, focal length 18 mm. This time I used three photos, exposed, underexposed and over exposed. I used Apple's Aperture software with Topaz Labs plug-ins, Denoise, Clarity and Photomatix Pro and Viveza 2 plug in from the Google Nik collection.

    I will post a couple landscapes, later and what recipe I use but typically I use the software noted about in yesterdays Pig hunt picture. Every picture is a bit different is what and how I adjust in each software or take a picture but the software above is what I use most and wanted to share that with folks on my process. It is awesome to see more posts about photos and photography here on the forum and a focus there.

    My camera is a Canon 60D, EF-S 18-135mm lens. I typically like to shoot at ISO 100, three photos, exposed, underexposed and over exposed all shot in RAW format. I used Apple's Aperture software with Topaz Labs plug-ins, Denoise, Clarity and Photomatix Pro on both photos one at Scott Beach and Yosemite Falls here in California. I really like how the HDR or these High Dynamic Range image techniques captures more of what my eye sees on sunsets and sunrises but it also captures well on landscapes in the daytime too.

    You guys are hard to follow, but here's a couple of mine from the past.

    I spent the night with these fire fighters during a scouting trip.
