Hi guys first real attempt.
Shot on sony alpha 77m 17-55mm lens.
Nice! Trying to figure out where you are - looks almost like Big White, but looks too high and big to be...
Great location, nice set of photo's! 1, 4 and 6 are awesome
straighten your horizons
rad shots mate . I like the first one. Post apocalyptic feel to it
1 and 5 are the standouts for me. They all seem to have a odd WB to me though. Like they are too yellow/green.
Which resort is this?
Love 1, 4 and 5.
Its Fernie Alpine Resort, top of the new polar peak chairlift. I adjusted the white balance to give it a much warmer feel to get the sun over the clouds, this also brought out the blue as well.
Also used a CPF and ND 12. Really a bit shame that #1 had the lens flair
Very cool shots and compositions. Personally I don't like the off WB, snow needs to be white for me. I know what you were going for though!
#3 would make an AWESOME B&W conversion I think.
Oh, very very nice. The first picture is an absolute standout!
Please tell me you hiked up, and got first tracks down .
Sledding it up is cheap .
Shots 3 and 5 are fantastic. I want to be there right now .
i love 5, apart from the diagonal horizion, but that being said, i didnt notice it till someone pointed it out
May be cheap...but means he could get more fresh tracks...I was thinking please tell me he had a mate on the skidoo to pick you up for next tracks.
otherwise its only 1 run before the crowds get up there.
5 as others have said horizon kills it (atleastr for me) but I like what you where trying to do (great potential in the shot).
apart from that the rest are great shots (but the subject causes me to be biased)
I think the first three have bad colour, especially number 2.
They all seem too heavy in saturation or at least on the 'vibrance' slider or something.
So much so you appear to be losing detail/contrast to colour in some of them.
I like number 5 but I would change the PP.
Thanks for the feedback guys, I can now fully see the off colour which is a case of once you see you cannot unsee haha. Might scale back the saturation and vibrance.
Diagonal horizon is a doozie too!
I would love to have some of these shots in full poster sized frames on my wall, love them amazing...... the best thing would have to be taking those shots. So jealous.
colours seem off in all of them.
Pity as to me this spoils the shots.
The colours do look off, and it looks like you've got a fair number of dust bunnies in #5, so the photos themselves could do with some improvement, but goddamn, it looks like it would've been an amazing sight to see in real life.
Apart from the white balance they look great. Real 'top of the world' stuff.
