    Awesome shot Adam. Got up into the mountains early enough this past weekend to catch the fog before it burned off.

    I love getting to take portraits like this.

    I'm in a bit of an editing crisis so opinions/suggestions would be great to hear. Too much editing? Not enough? Good balance of contrast?

    Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone is one of the largest hot springs in the world. It is a challenge of photograph the whole area. Here is one attempt to tell the story of the springs, steam and sky:

    @Greybagel, I'll preface this with if you like it and she's satisfied then that's all that matters. That said, (and I'll be as brief as possible), I'm not a "pro" photog by any means. I'm merely trying to tap into the "On Location Portraiture" arena by my efforts. My goal is to glamorize the look without going too far in editing. IMO, she is beautifully posed, and the photograph is wonderfully composed. The only areas that I might comment on are exposure being a bit hot on the left (her right) and skin retouching. Three skin areas that stand out for me are the blemish on the left cheek, the armpit crease (some editors have a more graphic term because of the look) , and the bright skin mark on the exposed arm. I tend to leave "beauty marks" that are appealing so I might have cloned it down - reducing opacity - but not totally eliminating it. I do think it's a lovely photograph.

    This was an out take because she was probably swallowing or something.....but then I saw the cheek bones and decided to work with it.

    The "formal" Katahdin photo of myself and my companions. I, Shepherd, am on the left with a sign for hiker trash in general (hiker trash is an affectionate term hikers use for themselves). Pancakes is next to me with a sign for Rooster, one of our companions who could not join us on the summit due to working a summer camp. Cricket is her sister, on the other side of the sign and holding a sign for her dog Roscoe - Roscoe had to go home when the girls had a deadline come up and had to quicken their pace. Nickelodeon is on the right with a box o' joe for Coffee Pot and Fresh Ground. Coffee Pot was too injured to continue hiking and went home to northern New Jersey where she hosted many hikers as they passed through the area. Fresh Ground was a section hiker last year and one of the greatest trail angels this year, so named because of his enthusiasm for coffee.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Wow some nice display already!

    I have tried shadow lifting on the awesone sensor of D800 with no joy. I finally bought into a filter system after so long resisting it. This is my first proper outing after some tests in poor weather.

    @Rx4Photo - Thanks a bunch! Definitely helpful

    Some people freeze when they know the camera is on them. Others become instant models.
