Re: vivid dreamy landscape

First you need to know what aerial perspective is.

And this would be your luminosity-saturation correlation for hue.

I don't see anything else you need to know for this image.

Re: vivid dreamy landscape

Image a little small to tell if real, computer generated or painted.

But, assuming a digital capture of a real scene the answer is easy. F/8 and be there :-)

Hi, Tony, sorry for the small file size but couldn't upload a bigger one.

I am convinced that it has been done by digital capture by looking at different pictures from the same set and portfolio.

I would say the same thing. At least it's much easier to accomplish some aspects of that if you're starting from a high dynamic range image. The sky seems pretty deep relative to some of the other tones, and going from a high dynamic range image is likely to help maintain detail in some of those saturated colors.

Blah. I don't know why you would want to consider anything that way either artistically or as a way to quantify it.

You are welcome. This image was done the same way. Single shot, luminosity painting.

Hello there.
To begin with, if you are the photographer, it is always receommended to pre-visualise the effect you're after in post processing at the time you capture the image. In that sense you will know if the scene that lies ahead of you is appropriate or not, and this will be dictated mainly by the light that falls on the scene.
The image you mentioned could have been processed in many ways.
_ Using curves to darken, lighten parts of the image, painting on the adjustment masks with black or white
_ Using Luminosity masks
_ Using the LAB color mode to enhance saturation and general image contrast
... and many other techniques.

But first, get your exposure right. Bracket.
Colour temperature could be set to auto in camera, you can manage that in Lightroom if needs be.
Compose well but not too tight, leave some margin for post processing cropping
And get inspiration by looking at as many landscape shots as possible.
If you need more advice, drop me a line, I'll be happy to help.

Cheers
