Exposing for the scene Cradle Mountain Tasmania

Exposing for the scene Cradle Mountain Tasmania - It was an early start, because we needed to drive into the Dove Lake carpark before hiking up Mount Campbell to find a composition for a landscape photography sunrise image of Cradle Mountain. To say it was cold was an understatement, lips were cold, batteries were losing power and the ground was iced up making it slippery and dangerous to keep climbing. Despite the temperature, the weather was looking good. The sky was clear and the mountain tops had a light dusting of snow, all we needed was the sun to rise. I started out with the camera in portrait mode with the 24-70mm lens and the circular polariser on the front to cut down some of the glare coming of the Dove Lake. The scene had quite a lot of contrast so I exposures a series of shots to ensure each part of the scene was exposure correct to maximise the detail I captured. When the sun finally rose, I turned the camera around to landscape and added the 0.9 Lee Filter to the front to darken down the sky, allowing me to bring up the exposure in the foreground and capture more detail.
