Canon 1Ds mkIII and the Dolomites in June 2012

Usually I share some pictures from the wonderful Dolomites whenever I have been there. I was there again on a workshop in June. It was wonderful weather and light. As usual the pictures are shot with my trusty now 4.5 years old 1Ds mkIII. I post processed all shown images from a single RAW file in Lightroom 4.1. I always (now) bracket my shots since LR 4.1 has the new automatic highlight recovery which means that the optimum exposure to get the maximum DR cannot be seen on the histogram on the LCD (as it also couldn't btw. for LR 3 reliably). There has been a lot of debate about DR and clearly the Canon sensors have been out tech'ed in recent years, however I find that even rather challenging lighting conditions can be handled nicely with the 1Ds mkIII regarding DR given the exposure technique described.

Som examples below. I know some will disagree in the post processing, but this is done to my taste, so bare with me

The following using the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L at f/8, 54mm, 1/500s and ISO 200.
