This is the second and favorite picture in the series from Tremblant. If you look at the direct center of the image you can see the bridge I was standing on to take yesterday's picture. Another hazardous shot, to take this one I had to be standing in the middle of the road, just at the end of a rather sharp turn.
There is a lot I like about this picture. Following what seems to have become part of my style, I like the general monochrome feel that has one area of color in it. I also like the composition, with the road going off into the distance, and the mountain in the middle. I like the sign on the road. I do wish it were a little larger, but in order to make it larger I would have had to push it more to the edge of the picture, or not take the picture from the middle of the road, but of which I thought would have made the image worse.
Processing-wise, I did not have to do much. I adjusted the contrast a bit and made the yellow stick out a little bit more. Adjusting the curves made the vingetting in the corners stand out a little more. I had never seen vingetting from this lens before, which I had not expected to find at the long end of the lens, but think it adds a bit to the sky. If it weren't there to start, I probably would have burned in the edges of the sky myself. Overall, I'm very happy with this shot.
