for the past few nights the temperature keeps dropping below freezing point. not that i hate winter, its just that i miss the long days of summer.

i was going thru some old photos n found this which i thought would be good for HDR. shot in 2007 during a trip to ziarat valley.

focal length: 27mm
aperture: f/11
shutter: 1/400

3 images from 1 jpeg file at different exposures (1.5, 0, -1.5) merged in photomatix 3, resized in ps cs3

Hello Mehmood,
this beautiful landscape. Yes, new here we have left only one hope to come sometime in summer. The rest ... only cold and snow and winter that does not want to leave.
Excellent the POV of your pictures. Splendid details.
Have a great day,

Interesting place, unusual view of the rock, perfect clarity of this photo

hI Mehmood...nice tones and light in this shot...well composed.


Hi Mehmood, aside the HDR nice work I like the complex composition of the narrow pass between the dramatic rocks and the escape of a blue sky on top... it feels like I was there and needed to go all the way to the end of the path, to the open wide space :)
Good shot.


Slaam Mehmood,
Beautiful POV and superb sharpness,the hdr process looks so natural which shows a good controlled tone mapping,a lovely summer shot,well captured and well done.
Have a nice day,
Mushtaq Hussain

Hello Mehmood jan!

Summer Summer Summer! I am waiting anxiously for! But I do not think I will get chance this year again to visit Orak. Actually it has been many year I have been here just in winters.
Well, here you capture has been superb regarding the site selection. Nice DOF in between these rocks with lovely sky and vivid colors. The inclusion of still water here is the point of beauty.

TFS, indeed very beautiful POV.

Best Regards,
