Water Logged

On 30 July I visited one of the local parks in my area in hopes to get some photographs of the man-made falls. While my initial thought was there was no good compositions, I decided to go back and look at them again. I took numerous shots of this log in the water and decided that I liked this one because it seemed to lead the viewer from the shore to the falls with the log in the middle.

Finally Something New

Nikon D7500, 55.0-200.0mm @82.0mm, f/16, ISO 250

I was finally able to get out and take some photographs and try a few new things. The picture above is from the Monocacy River, which is by where I live. I had recently purchased a 10 stop ND filter and was finally able to try it out. The photograph is actually a composite of two photographs. The upper part was taken at an exposure of 1/100 sec to freeze the leaves on the trees as it was windy. The lower, water and tree trunk, were taken at an exposure of 8 seconds to blur the water. I then blended the two in Photoshop to get the final image. This was the first time I blended two photographs.

Waterfalls

Took this picture the same day as my previous post “Rocks and Water“. I wanted to post something newer, but I haven’t gotten a chance to get out to take any photographs lately. So I’m going through older shots and trying out new Lightroom and Photoshop processing. This was another long exposure 5 sec. I lightened the falls and tried to take down the surrounding rocks. Hope everyone likes it.
