Behind the camera at MatterhornIt’s a little bit strange to edit landscape shots, after so many cityscape shots in a row. They are so different. It’s so easy to get them to look very unnatural, just by adding a little bit more color. But since I took a lot of them last week, I at least will have a lot to practice on :)

This one, same as the one yesterday, was taken at the Schwarzee, above Zermatt. This time you can see the other side, towards the Matterhorn mountain. This is a blend from two exposures, created in Photoshop. Since I used a polarizing filter to darken the sky, I only needed to brighten few shadow areas from a brighter exposure.

I’m also including a behind the camera shot. I took many of those during the week for my Facebook page, so will include them with few of the Switzerland posts :)
