Misha, you often seem to capture what it is like to be there in person! Truly it is "the Range of Light!"
Congrats on another great moment...

Thank you for your nice comment. You summarized my photo ambitions very well. It is may main goal to bring a captured scene to what I saw with my own eyes as close as possible.

Thanks! Alaska trip was rough, eye opening and inspiring. I am contemplating to write a TR. Hopefully, I will find some time for it in the next few weeks. Stay tuned.

Wow. I see the effects of the polarizer but I can't figure out where you placed the graduation. Never would have guessed GND. Nice work.

GND was essential here for properly exposing the water and the rock in the foreground. I used a soft-edge filter so it is hard to see its presence.

You keep bringing them on Misha! If you're not doing this as a job yet, you should!

Thanks man. I am developing this on the side and so far things are looking promising. Becoming a full-time nature photographer is very hard these days due to the market saturation. So I am hoping to get there little by little.

David Senesac comment on our unnatural saturation status quo

A quite aesthetic image of alpenglow but like most of your other images, unnaturally saturated which seems to be the status quo with many photographers using either saturated films or new digital cameras and what the audience here on summitpost likes to see. As though the experiences we see in person are not good enough. Thus every dusk shot needs glowing pink and purples and every alpenglow on rock is glowing deep red. I on the other hand prefer to both make and value more highly other's images that look like the way I see them whether or not that is as impressive as technology might render them. ...David

unfortunately, we seem to be in the minority with this opinion. I have several photos that would be outrageous if I were to move that 'saturation' slider up a bit

Let me clarify something. My goal as a photographer is to get the best possible results out of my camera without needing to heavily post process. That could mean warm and saturated colors, such as the ones produced by Fuji Velvia film. Fortunately, my equipment allows me to produce the desired results. Call me lazy or a purist, but I do not like to tweak photos in Photoshop too much aside from obvious things such as sharpness and contrast. If you think that I heavily tweak saturation in my photos, think again... Having said that, many people (myself included) love warm colors that certain films and cameras produce. I take photos the way they are because I love how they look, first and foremost. This is how I remember these scenes. The reason why my photos look saturated is because I often use circular polarizing filters and increase dynamic range with graduated neutral density filters. I also shoot at times when the light is the warmest such as magic hours. Some like to take photos with film that is less saturated or shoot in a less than perfect light... that is their choice and right. I am just different. Before dismissing this approach, one may want to get familiar with works of very accomplished nature photographers such as Galen Rowell. IMHO, their work is as relevant today as it was decades ago.
