Seven Cranes

Beautiful images Mike,the landscape in the southwest has a unique look that I never tire seeing photos of. The exposures are very good, do you mind talking about your settings to get these results.

These are the best I've gotten up to now in the Rio Grande Bosque, due mostly I think to the quality of light I found there yesterday morning. The slight overcast produced very nice tones, both in the sky and on the ground. No exposure adjustments with the camera. I always check the basic settings in Photoshop to make sure I am getting the best balance from contrast, levels, curves, color and saturation. Most done with direct sun in the frame will also need a bit of burning and dodging.
