I have been trying to get some landscape shots at Hinze Dam (Advancetown Lake). I'm aiming at a large print.
I'd love any advice on getting a better shot. Mine are always too dark despite the histogram looking pretty full to the right.
To take this one I put on an ND 8 to soften the water and a soft NDGrad to pull the sky down. Sun was to my left. It was about 20 mins after sunrise.
In Lightroom I have pushed the up about 1 , pulled the highlights back and selectively put some saturation in the cloud and the reflected cloud using the adjustment brush
the histogram looks like
This on was taken earlier with no filters
with this histogram
What do you think??
This was my first outing with my new 6D
