    Sorry I haven't been around much lately guys, I've been busy hiking and traveling and haven't had time to take as many photos as I'd like. Took this one about half an hour before sunrise this morning using my Fuji X-T20 and 10-24. Couldn’t resist the texture on this rock.

    Blend of two images, both taken at the same settings about 20 minutes apart. One for the foreground, one for the colors in the sky. Manually blended in photoshop using a layer mask.

    Exif: 15mm, f/8, 25 seconds, iso 200. Shot in jpeg with the velvia film simulation and just a little bit of saturation and dehaze added in post to boost the colors.

    I like it a lot for slow, deliberate work. Could never use it for fast paced work, would definitely need to upgrade to the X-T2 for that. It’s been really solid for hiking when the D810 would be too heavy, so I’m happy with it for my purposes.

    I really like the jpegs it produces, and don’t shoot RAW at all because they don’t play nice with Lightroom.

    That's a really pretty gradient.

    I've never thought about image stacking an image with time in between like that (aside from startrails).

    I'll have to try that! It's like HDR, but more natural.

    Many people have great success doing exactly this using multiple exposures and blending them with luminosity masks. The results, in my opinion, are superior to HDR.

    Yeah, I'm a fan. I definitely need to find some situations to use this.
