BadScience: mostly very nice; I think the clarity slider is too high on some of the cloudy shots
There you go.http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7688604710/photos/3277541/picture1The original RAW looks washed-out because I generally shoot to the right. The clarity-like-effect is probably just the general contrast boost (you can tell I like high contrast photos)
Roman Korcek: As much as I try I don't see "the hiker wearing a fluorescent yellow jacket" on #10. Would someone please be so kind and paint an arrow or something onto the image for me? Thank you.
It looks better when you have access to the full resolution. He really provided a sense of scale to the landscape, those steam plumes look huge when you spot the hiker.
Hi everyone. Zhi here.Thanks for visiting and commenting. Hope you drop by the Tongariro National Park if you do have a chance to visit New Zealand. It's a very special and pretty place (when the weather is good), and it's still relatively under-photographed.
Thanks for commenting. The only photo that has its clarity adjusted is #5 (Clarity +21). Quite a lot of these photos were taken at relatively low light condition. Adding clarity will end up pushing up the noise level as well.
Hi, Zhi here.Sorry, he's really tiny.http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7688604710/photos/3277524/11-scorching-earth
