The shot is absolutely beautiful.

I'm not familiar with the real world "alpen glow", so maybe I'm way off here, but, to my eyes, the sky is way too cyan to be believable. I know there was a low, setting sun which is orange/yellow, but the sky color hurts the original image for me.

I'm beginning to think that perhaps Ken's original is somewhat overexposed. Alpen Glow normally happens when the sun is only "minutes" from setting.

Nice one Dave, looks good.

Being from BC I suppose you see a few such sights.

As its a tad flatter where I live, the only time I see such beauty is when I go skiing. (Speaking of which, the ski season isn't so far off now, can feel the old ski legs twitching already.)

Funnily enough Gary, I've only seen Alpen Glow twice. Living on Vancouver Island which is relatively flat where I live, we do get lovely distance views of the Coast Mountains on the mainland. Perhaps it is the angle to the setting sun that we miss this type of beauty. Whenever I need an Alpen Glow fix, I pull out my copy of Galen Rowell's Vision: The Art of Adventure Photography. Here's a pic from our place. Even though Mt Baker is way down in Washington, when we can see it, it's three times higher than our Coast Mountains..quite spectacular!

Cheers
Dave

Dave,

I recognise the landscape in your picture. I used to fly into Nanaimo all the time. Was that shot taken north of the airport, facing north towards Gibsons/Sechelt?

Love the panorama Dave.

It's a few years since I was last in Vancouver, and then only passing through on my way to Whistler. Love the drive up the Sea to Sky Highway.

Hi Ken,

I like the photo.

Just a thought, but the reason you probably lost the warm colour in your original shot was because the white balance would have been set to "Auto" and as such would have tried to neutralise the "unnatural" colour cast.

I've had similar problems when shooting subjects with a strongly coloured background. I've gotten around this by setting my colour balance to Daylight

Regards

Con Looymans

Thanks. I just bought a new camera and I intend to learn the basics of photography. I believe my FZ5 has those features so I'll have a good read.
