I got very lucky with this image! I had planned out the morning to catch the eclipse, but I had my dates wrong and only realized my error the evening before as I was settling down for the night, so I didn't get to bed as early as I would have liked to rest up for my morning outing. And, I didn't have my spot fully picked out to catch this once in a lifetime celestial event. Because of this, I set the alarm a bit earlier than I might have otherwise done, which was a good thing (as you'll see as I work my way through this rambling narrative...). An hour and 20min drive to my viewpoint only to find it socked in by the clouds you can see past the ridgeline in this shot and I had a panicky race to my backup viewpoint (which would have been a 20min drive under normal circumstances - I won't say how long it took me to get there that morning...).

I have yet to develop the full skillset when it comes to landscape photography. I couldn't sort out the right settings for shooting into the sun, so I bracketed every composition in hopes that I could exposure blend something together into a solid image. I haven't shared my image from that morning before now because I tried processing my files 3 times before today, but I couldn't get a "final" image that felt both real and looked like how I remembered the morning. Until now.

This may not be perfection in photography, but it captures how I remembered the scene. I shot it a bit wider than images I've seen from other photographers , but I wanted to capture the ethereal mists of the morning as well as the crescent sun. Those same clouds almost blocked the view of the event entirely, but I managed to find a window of opportunity with is image.

I apologize for the rambling description with this image!

I'm sorry for the duplicate post for those that have followed me over the years. I realized that I lost the edits on a chunk of my favorite images - which gave me the excuse to tackle them with new edits. This one is from Old San Juan in 2018.
Gear: Olympus OM-D e-M1.2 with the m.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 lens - 21mm | f5.6 | 1/200 | ISO200.
Software: Initial processing in DxO PhotoLab 4 with additional edits using my "Streets" preset as a starting point. I included a roundtrip to Nik Silver Efex Pro and blended it in using On1 Layers to bring more of a pastel effect to the shot.

Yes, I know the "dawn" part is relatively irrelevant in a monochrome image, but that is the title you get! ;-)

Hardware: Olympus OM-D e-M1.2 with the m.Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens and NiSi 10stop ND filter, all mounted on my MeFoto Globetrotter Classic tripod - 12mm | ISO64 | 451s | f8.
Software: Initial RAW processing on DxO PhotoLab 4, landscape filter adjustments in On1 Photo RAW 2021 with a roundtrip to Nik Silver Efex Pro for the mono conversion.

Another image from a magical morning last weekend!

As far as the technical side goes, this image is a 3 shot HDR (+/- 1 1/3 stops). But each of those images were made utilizing the Olympus Hi-Res mode sensor shifting 8 separate exposures to yield an 80mp final result. So, this is actually a blend of 24 images! Adding all those exposures together yields a total exposure of a fraction under 2 seconds.

This image was processed in a workflow that included DxO PhotoLab 4, HDR Efex Pro & On1 Photo RAW 2020.5.
