Portitsa Canyon by pestilence Portitsa Canyon by pestilence
I knew that Pindos (North Greece) was wonderful, but never felt it before until the minute I visited the vast landscapes of that place.
Portitsa is a canyon in North Greece at one the most magical places of this country, Pindos, mountains, valleys, rivers, canyons anything your heart would ever want resides inside 2500 Km's of pure nature land.
I entered the canyon early in the afternoon while the sun was right above it, I knew if I waited a while soon the light would be painting the walls of the canyon and providing me a capture that would be appealing.
There where some distant mountains which I took in considerations before I started shooting, around 18:00pm would be a good time, with the sun a bit high not yet hidden and painting inside the canyon.
I took a double exposure for this one, one for the entrance of the canyon to preserve the strong highlights and a second one within the canyon, the reflective light lit the walls on the left side.

Shoot a frame with the whibal included, pick the WB in the RAW editor, and apply that WB to the rest of the session :)

yes this is what i thought you did, because this card gives different exposures to the angle tilted if you shoot only the card etc. specially with light coming from bouncing angles like this pic.

by the way do you know anyone wanting to buy 70-200f2.8 usm is canon lens i have, condition excellent for about 1270 e ? and 1DS mk3 ?

Sorry don't have anyone in mind for the lens, would love the camera though (if I could afford it now :) ). How much do you ask for the ds?

Κώστα απλά φανταστικό:omg:! Μου θύμισε κάτι αμερικάνικα φαράγγια με τρελό φως, αλλά από ό,τι βλέπω και εδώ έχουμε τέτοια απίστευτα μέρη. Όχι μόνο μέρη αλλά και καταπληκτικούς φωτογράφους να τα φωτογραφίζουν όπως πρέπει.

Τα συγχαρητήριά μου:faint:
