This is from last month's fall color at Sabrina. I just set up a new Mac today and still trying to get all my stuff to work with OSX10.

Doug how strong a ND filter? Aesthetic to be sure but looks a bit bizarre haha the way it darkens towards the peaks. But am aware of how you like to shoot that way. Below is a shot late morning from the same area though more to the right across the road where one cannot see the peaks as well but get better aspen. Not a great shot or one I'd market or print but with overcast directly above to fill light in the dark rocky mid ground areas, it could work some time. Provia 4x5 flatbed scanned crudely for this web post. Pretty much looks just like the slide and that looked pretty much exactly like the scene. I prefer to shoot aspen semi-backlit and the aspen below Sabrina get that look later most mornings.

Dave- It took a 3 hard stop to balance the sun lit peaks, worked better as a vertical.

Doug, was it a 3-stop grad ND? Is the darkening a result of a polarizer, or just the natural shadows? It looks like natural shadows to me.

Very nice work!

On the horizontal shot I used a warming polarizer and a split 3 hard step filter at about 150 mm, so some of the canyon walls and higher trees picked up some extra exposure from the filter. I also tried a 3 soft step, didn’t work with a 4 stop difference between the peaks and the foreground at 150 mm.
