Yosemite Falls

Hi all! Here is the 6th shot in my Yosemite series this week. I hope you are enjoying my photo tour of the Yosemite Valley and a US. National Park. I am still a bit under the weather so I am keeping it short.


View Larger On Black


The Photo:

From the previous photo in the series, if you turn to your left, this is your view. Upper and lower Yosemite falls. This was taken in between seasons as you can tell. A little snow left melting away and no lush green in the trees and meadows yet ... so, I guess you can say this is different from the shots you see of this location. There are so many other photos here on flickr that put my shot to shame. Again, timing is everything (well almost everything) in photography.



The Shot:

Standard 3 exposures RAW (-2..0..+2EV) taken on tripod with a Canon Rebel XTi and the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR Lens

HDR: Tone Mapping using Photomatix 3.1

Minor adjustments in Photoshop CS2


All my images uploaded here on flickr are low resolution (1024 pixels long edge max). For a higher quality view, just ask.


Thank you for those that have left and in advance for those that do leave comments either positive or constructive. I am trying to give the world the best photography I can give and it is other professionals like you that help me to that goal.
