Question Simon ladefoged

Recently came across Simon Ladefogeds work and fell in love with his landscapes. I especially like the mountain scenes and would love to achieve this look. Any help would be appreciated.

His color is understated.... no extra saturation ... almost very slightly desaturated.... other than that it's fairly straight forward.... his composition and the locations might be what's grabbing you.

Re: Simon ladefoged

His color is understated yes. But I also see selective sharpening - look at trees and grass. I believe these are manually plated together. These may also have either very minimal passes of HDR or several well exposed RAWs. Notice black halos where moving water meets the shoreline, and also where the mountains meet the sky in some examples. I would wager that he has his own library of killer cloud formations, and doubt these were all captured together. In my opinion these could have been blended better, but I still very much like his images. None of these techniques would be anything without his choice of locations and subject matter.

Thanks for taking a look, I had wondered whether they were blended images as they all seemed so well exposed throughout. The locations and comps most definately do grab me and I guess, the lack of colours other than the different tones of green would give the images that understated look. Thanks again.
