Pure by Capturing-the-Light Pure by Capturing-the-Light
Taken near to Arapuni Dam, in the Waikato, north Island, New Zealand, on the way to work one morning.
I changed the shot settings to tunsten to get the effect, the beams of light etc are exactly as captured, the only alteration was the tungsten colouration and then I flipped the photo horizontally as I found the beams direction more pleasing to the eye.

To everyone that favourites any of my work, please accept in advance my sincere thanks for doing so. For those that comment on this or any other photograph, you will always recieve a reply. Demands on my time may mean a delay on occassions in responding, but I will always reply. Thank you for visiting this page, the support of all visitors is truly appreciated. Simon

i have been in similar situations in the past, the only thing i manage to do is observe such beauty. Next time i will try to focus on pressing the button of my camera :D

may i ask you if you used any NDs or whitebalance card or any other useful technique to get such depth and bring some details in the shadow areas of mountain ?

Thank you Vassilis for your kind words again. In respect of technique, so far i have not used filters on these shots. Have just got a lee big stopper and an nd filter again by Lee but trying to get the hang of them yet. I use photoshop, and also Nik color Efex which I beleieve is a useful programme to have. anything I can help with just let me know. I am no expert, there are much wiser photographers on here, but will always help if I can.
