|Caribou in Denali National Park|
Like Patrick, I strive to focus on the composition of my photos and edit with the goal of presenting the colors as they were in reality when I took the photo. I'm not big on over-saturated photos where the colors are unrealistic. I like to capture nature the way I viewed it. However, I do rely on 'tweaking' the colors in a lot of my images, especially sunset or cloudy day photos. Ever tried taking a sunset photo with a point-and-shoot camera on auto mode and then on sunset mode? The colors turn out completely different! I've found reality seems to be somewhere in the middle. That's what I try to get to when I adjust the colors in my images.
These are my favorite landscapes I took in 2013. All were taken with my DSLR (various lenses) except the Mile High Pass photo which was taken with our point-and-shoot Panasonic Lumix.
