Fall foliage in Bear Mountain, NY
Went for a hike up Bear Mountain NY in the Hudson Valley last weekend. Took plenty of shots but overall I'm relatively new to landscape/nature photography.
First one was my first attempt ever at using an ND filter. Dropped 10 stops and took a 15" exposure with the Fujinon 56mm f1.2. My two self-critiques here are that the ISO is too high and the composition leaves a little to be desired with that tree in the way (it was very crowded and I didn't have a ton of room).
The second one was from near the top of the mountain. I thought instead of just taking a standard landscape shot that I'd give it the feeling that I was "peeking out" from the trees. Not sure if it had its intended effect but I do like it.
Any thoughts or CC? Thanks!
