Hi all,
trying to follow Niek (SunToucher) advices about exposure, saturation, horizons, etc.. (Thank you Niek!).

So, that day there was lot of sun but it was windy so clouds were coming and going, changing light conditions. There was lot of reflection with snow but also it was getting hot, so water made more reflects.
I tryied to used the exposure function of my camera; it goes from -2 to +2, so I played with that. The problem was that that pictures cames too much dark or too much white, this one is the best shot, and is not my favourite one. Any other sugestion?

The place is Cerro Krund summit (Cerro Castor ski resort). Taken close to midday.

Hello Brenda,
Awesome looking landscape image. I really like the lighting in this shot, even though you were having problems with exposure. I know what you mean by too much white when the sun comes out in full force, but this particular photo seems to be just right.
The only thing I could suggest in these circumstances would be to try a type of ND filter. I personally have never used one, but some of my friends say they really help in very harsh lighting.

Hello Brenda
Beautiful photo very good composition and wonderful atmosphere.

Hola Brenda,
siempre es grato oirte, y sin duda poder admirar esos increibles paisajes de tu tierra. Que buenos recuerdos tengo de Ushuaia, me queda volver otra vez.
Saludos cordiales.
