Rubha an h-Eist by DamianKane Rubha an h-Eist by DamianKane
Neist Point on the Isle of Skye, Inner Hebrides. 

I took this one evening in late July. I'd been watching and waiting as the shower approached from the north, making sure I had a camera ready for when it had passed. The wait paid off and I was rewarded with this scene.

Has this photo been color corrected or is this a pure photo of the environment? It's obviously beautiful however today so much postprocessing is involved in photographs it's hard to know if it's the illusion that one appreciates or the actual environment.
The real challange is to capture the moment of nature with it's true and already beautiful colors. I hope this is the case here.

Congrats on the Daily Dev!

It's pretty much as I saw it. The only reason for the dodging and burning was that the RAW file was a bit flat looking compared to how it should be and I also felt that perhaps the sky was a bit flat too, which as an art piece made it less appealing (I basically added an ND Grad)

I'll try and find the original, but the RAW files from my camera are very dull and flat compared to what you see with your own eyes, hence the use of photoshop.

Yes, I completely understand the idea behind making something more appealing. To be competitive today it seems you must manipulate the images in this way. But really then it's no longer photography of real life but rather very close to photo manipulation in my opinion. And noone seems to care really. Your changes here might be small but ads for hotel rooms and beaty posters are today also called "photos" and yet they are edited heavily.
The thing that gives away the fake photos are strong black contrasting shadows, a specific green over-saturated tint of grass and the depth you mention created by ND gradients.

However if this works for you and you enjoy making your photos this way and many others appreciate it there is no reason for you to stop. :)  I just share my thoughts on something I see as problematic.

I got my answer further down by a post you had made. It was manipulated. Can you upload the original for compare?

Light of sun with dark of storm; softness of grass with harshness of rocky cliff and coastline - all combine to create my favorite contrasts! Beautiful all the way around! :nod: Congratulations on the DD! :)
