      This was from mid-May in Banff National Park, Canada. When the light is this flat I am typically
      groaning but I shot a couple rolls of film any way. We can't always have ideal light.

      Thank-you for the invite Dave Powell. I am still getting orientated around here.

      This was shot on Kodak Portra 400.

      Welcome. I'm a photography noob... how much editing did it take to bring out the green and other colors given the flat light?

      Hi Gorudy, I use film so I dont have to edit my photos :) It is kinda like cheating. I have the photo lab scan my film to my preferances and then we never have to open up photoshop. Once in a while I will add a bit of conrast or change the level of blacks but using film means very limited editing for me. To give a bit of a colour boost I over expose the film a bit. If the sun was out I would have had a bit warmer tones and more of a pop to the image overall.

      Welcome Cody!

      Amazing shot! Props to you for making a wonderful image out of seemingly poor conditions for landscape photography. I probably wouldn't pull my camera out in conditions like that, but now I'm inspired to. I really like your framing. The photo feels grand, like looking out a window into the background. Also, the depth of field gives it a moody feel. Love it.
