Old Wood

Darn hard shot to compose – I was squatted down under some very wet branches trying to get a enough perspective on the falls to eliminate that bright sky, camera was nearly on the ground and in the end I had to crop some off the top to remove the blown out mass of white up there anyway. Even with a bracketed exposure there was too much dynamic range in the light so I let it go free 😉

In anycase it does leave the opportunity for the log so shine and be the star actor in the image, nicely done loggy 🙂 and fully supported by a team of orange leaves

3 frame manually blended image
Exif/setup data:
D7000 coupled with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @11mm Aperture: f/13 and Shutter Speed: 8s (mid frame) 2s (the upper falls and bright area) 30s shadows and under rocks 🙂
out front – screw in circular polariser and hard wood.

As always, I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed.

  1. I really appreciate your awesome reply +Gerard Blacklock . It served as a reminder to me that I can bracket manually – duh, the first way to do it. But sometimes my mind gets stuck, and then someone like you opens it up again. Many thanks.
