The Dom by AndreasResch The Dom by AndreasResch
The dom is the second highest mountain of Switzerland and an impressive rockface to look at.
Shot from close to the Aletsch Glacier.

This is wonderful Andreas. I have to ask a technical question. I am amazed at the depth of field. The shooting data says f2. So nearly wide open you have literally miles of depth of field. Bravo! A tilt / shift lens?

The f/2 is a result of my Contax adapter not being able to communicate with the camera. It always returns f/2. The aperture is manually set on my lens. In most cases I use something between f/8 and f/16.

Another stunning capture. Composition superb, that lovely foreground winter foliage,(that, for me, adds an almost textured softness to the shot), and stream, allow your eye to meander further into this wonderful view and the, "icing on the cake", (forgive the pun), that simply divine snow capped mountain range. You almost feel that you could step into the shot and lucky you that this available for you to do just that.
Thank you so much for sharing this inspirational, motivational and educational shot

Amazing photo Andreas. Actually the foreground is not very attractive because of the grass but the icy river is nice and the mountain behind leaves the viewer speechless! Well, if you were busy, we're waiting for the results :)

I was a little torn at that moment because I actually wanted to take a large format shot behind me. This is sort of a sub-product of the actual shot.

In fact after I commented I looked again and I loved the photo totally. It's very beautiful and would make an amazing photo for a calendar.

As I already said, it's a wonderful image Andreas. I would like to ask you how you set your exposure to get that quality and a maximal dynamic range for images like this. Do you expose to the right, or to the left? I read recently that it is better to expose to the right (in regard to the histogram) and have an image that is just not over-exposed, but close to it. That, as it was said, guarantees maximal details compared to the amount of noise, because the brighter areas contain more information and lesser noise. That would mean, whenever I need to use "fill light" I increase the noise ratio. Thanks.

If you wait a little, Alban there will be a step-by-step guide on my upcoming website relaunch. But in general you are right - exposing to the right always is the best solution to get the best tone separation and less noise. For that reason in this case almost the whole shot was created from the brightest exposure with the settings taken down in Lightroom. I had the blocky and featureless noise pattern in the shadow areas of digital files.

Ja, Andreas, gerne. Sicherlich eine Frage, die manch anderen interessieren dürfte. Danke.
