You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension. A creek flows across a beach at this location, and all sorts of interesting things happen as the waves and changing tide interact with the streamflow. Here, the stream had downcut slightly through the sand in response to the ebbing tide, and drainage from occasional high waves had cut channels across the stream’s newly eroded bank. Water was still draining from the last wave, so the sky was reflected in the shallow water atop the sand on the right. Most of the Lightroom post-processing here was intended to increase the contrast in texture between the sand channels and the reflected sky: I increased clarity and sharpness in the channels, and radically reduced clarity in the sky; I also darkened the blues slightly to bring out the sky color a bit more. There was a blue cast to the original image, and I left it that way—I’m not altogether sure I agree with my decision on that. My rationale was that I thought the blue contributed to the strangeness of the scene, but I suspect the real reason was that I really like the shade of blue it produces.
