|Thanks for the critique. I used a 3-stop reverse graduated ND filter for this shot which is half clear and half gray. The reverse ND starts with a 3-stop gray in the middle and tapers off to 2-stop to the edge.
I'm still learning how to use my DSLR as I'm used to film for many years. The original shot which I underexposed by 2/3 stop was, well underexposed but I brought it back up in Photoshop. I wasn't satisfied with any of the white balance settings so I increased the saturation by 10 and added magenta in Color Balance. For me, this would have been much better with Fuji Velvia.
