I took a photo yesterday on Roan Mountain, on the AT.
In the foreground is an overgrown meadow. Midground is a nearby mountain, dark in contrast with the sun setting just over it. In the background, more cascading mountains.
This was shot in RAW on a Canon 40D and I'm doing post-processing in LR 4.4.1.
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that each zone needs a separate exposure level. But it could be that I need to adjust the lighting in some other way... any help would be appreciated.
Adjust exposure to +1.9 for foreground:
Sky and background mountains are mostly visible around -0.4:
Any thoughts appreciated... both about post-processing and what I need to do next time to make this easier.
