This is so appealing, from the curvy road, to the evanescent light, to the clouds shrouding the mountaintops.
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): It deludes to me that you have taste of this and you transmit it with those so good words. Thanks, RedPen! smile
nice tone color..love it
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Many thanks for your visit and your comment! smile
Such forboding clouds on what looks like a nice day otherwise. HDR?
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Yes, Nigel, is another HDR. But the clouds, only confirmed that the storm that was being approachedsmile Thanks again for comment

This looks something like a Kay processing. Are you experimenting with clouds? The curve of the road forms a nice line in the picture.

Great picture.
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): I think that Kay uses another different technique that it must consist of raising the levels of halo. Here one is a revealed HDR of a file RAW with Photomatix. Thank you very much, Louis, friend mine and I wish you that you have a good weekend! We see Monday! wink
Fantastic shot Jose!
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Thanks again, bridge!

Extraordinaria José Ángel.

Desde mi punto de vista composición y luz 10. Las ramas del árbol enmarcando la escena todo un acierto.
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Pues, quiero que sepas que aprecio tu comentario. Muchas gracias, Ricardo! smile
Nice shot - well composed.
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Many thanks, Bernie! Everything is well?

Sin dudarlo, de toda la serie me quedo con esta.

Guauuu... es fantástica. Qué gozada manejar así tantos elementos a la vez. Composición, luz, color, y encima HDR!!!
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): No, Eric, la gozada es leer comentarios tan buenos como el tuyo. Me alegra que te guste. Y decirte que esto del HDR es mogollón de adictivo. smile
This is a really nice shot. I love the color. The lines are wonderful also. All you landscape people have inspired me. I will be posting a landscape tomorrow.

Lovely shot, Jose Angel. It looks like a postcard. The road really leads you into the picture, making you want to follow it round the corner.

Great landscape and the road leads the ey in towards the mountains in the background. With perhaps a little mystery as to what is round the bend ahead. Well seen.
Jose Angel Saez-Diez (Jasdg): Ahahh! You are saying, the important thing is the mystery that hides after the curve of the highway. You will have to come to Barcelona, to descubir it! wink
