Interesting Landscape tone

I stumbled upon the works of Julian Caverly. He is an excellent photographer before any processing but I was wondering about the overall tone that seems apparent throughout his works.

http://www.juliancalverley.com/folio.../lightbox.htm#

To me it seems almost a bit desaturated but excellent detail and tone. No doubt he is using a high resolution camera probably digital back but still I think there is a general process he does to all the images.

Any ideas?

No it's not quite that simple. Yes no doubt he uses a polarizing filter as well as a gradiated nutral density filter, but I'm pretty sure there is some serious post production going on there.

Re: Interesting Landscape tone

Yes, there is some sharpening, vignetting, contrast control and saturation and I also suspect I find a hint of Lucis Art in there too. Every digital image has to have post production, especially if you shoot raw. I don't detect anything out of the ordinary in terms of post, though. IMHO he just starts with a well exposed, in-focus, saturated image and then does what every digital image needs - sharpening, vignetting, contrast control and saturation.

Re: Interesting Landscape tone

Id be interested too. Its great colour work and my colour work is absolutely crap and not getting better. The colours look saturated and desaturated at the same time.

So frustrating....

Can you post something relevant from this statement, and let other people see if they can help you? Everyone has a vision of his own, and you'll surely find something interesting to start with, that will give you ideas.

Re: Interesting Landscape tone

Ok. Don't want to hijack the thread to much, but for instance how would I acheive colour like this. My colour skills really stratch to saturating/desaturating, overlay e.t.c

There is this and so much more colour stuff out there. I've never really come across anything that goes into detail or cool colour tutorials...

Re: Interesting Landscape tone

I really love your landscapes, I think the color is better than the ones from the OP...just my opinion, I think that it's more a question of more shadows in yours (and some more contrast) than really a question of color or saturation. His seems less saturated because they are lighter in exposure and yours have deep blacks... I'm not really a specialist in color but it's how it looks to me.

Re: Interesting Landscape tone

Not sure if you are talking to me but thanks if you are. I go more towards a darker style naturally but also because that's to a degree my limit. I would just love to have an arsenal of colour workflows to apply to an image as and when I feel it's right..
