Columbia River Gorge from Cape Horn - Washington - HDR

Newer Older

Please click here to view this river large!

This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. 1 layer mask to increase contrast in the sky. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. Some dodging and burning to bring out details. Used High Pass sharpening to sharpen image.

View of the breathtaking Columbia River from Cape Horn. Presented in full HDR!
