    I went for a climb up a little hill called Huangshan (means Yellow Mountain) about two weeks ago. Here's some photos from the trip to share with you guys. I don't think I did too bad with my first ever sunset/sunrise shots.

    Full set can be found here. Hope you enjoy.

    CC appreciated.

    That sure is some breathtaking scenery!

    I really like #2, this is my favourite in this set; I like how it shows the shadows from the different mountain tops. Actually, its not unlike a wallpaper that comes with Windows Vista.. and that really is saying its a top shot.

    #3, #4 and #8 has a bit too much underexposure in the shadows for my liking, and as a result you have lost a lot of detail in these areas. it would have been good if you could have done a HDR image for these.

    #6 and #7, i like them but I'm 50/50 about the washed out look from the sunlight hitting the mist. Was this intentional in your post processing? They are still good images regardless though.

    Majestic! That's the word I'd use to describe it.

    I tried to pic a few favourite pics, but struggled miserably.

    Great job! Well done!:thumbup:

    Number 2 is simply stunning.. The sun looks like it's floating before the horizon. Magical.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Glad you liked 'em :)

    I'm not a fan of the technique, so I don't think you'd bee seeing much HDR stuff from me. With 4, crushing the blacks was sort of intentional, as I didn't want to draw attention away from the horizon, but I see where you're coming from with #3 and #8

    The washed out look is as captured, and I actually bought back some of the detail in post; the flare in #7 turned out better than I hoped. Thanks for the detailed comments.

    Awesome, eh?:D

    Mountain shots are always great to look at! I'm liking #1-3,6 and 12 :thumbup: Seems like the early rise and probable low temperatures were worth the effort.
