When light conditions are very contrasty, getting the result you want is quite tricky. I will either use a ND Grad filter, a polarizer filter or bracket shots. I don’t like HDR so I will often try to dodge and burn or use a software ND Grad if I wasn’t able to use a real one in the field. I have also purchased Neutrahazer from Kolor which helps reduce haze especially when the are mountains on the distant background.
Today, I am posting three versions of the same image each one having been processed differently. To be honest I much prefer the original version despite the low contrast.
