The view of the mountains in Passo Giau, I found these beautiful colors at sunset, shooting into sun direction, the beautiful warm colors of the sunset that create silhouettes in the mountains for a very interesting view

I took both of these handheld photos with my 70-200 telephoto zoom lens, therefore they are single shots, I did not shoot in bracketing mode, just checked the histogram at the time of shooting


Considering that they are all hand-held shots without bracketing the processing was consequently quick and simple, I worked all the images without exposure blending but directly using luminosity masks on the single exposures

I lowered the brightness of the sky, increased some shadows and increased the contrasts locally, using TTS Pro I increased details selectively and I lightened some parts of the mountain using the glow tool

I added a soft orton effect to both images to to intensify the glow effect on the landscape, as last step I added a soft vignette as I usually do in all my images to increase the central part of the landscape

I always hope you will find this interesting and usefull. I like to ear this from you!
