Smoky Mountain National Park

A few images from the fall trip to the Smokys

Sunset in the Smoky Mountains

Grist Mill

Canon 7D, 16 mm, Exposure Triad:  ISO 100, F14
HDR Bracketed at 1/4, .8 and 2.5 seconds

This is a spot in the Smoky Mountain National Park that I wish I had brought along waders to go into the stream for a better viewpoint.  This is a three exposure HDR image created using NIK HDR Efex Pro.  An overall softening was applied – the effect was masked out from the mill that was then treated with some added contrast using curves and selective sharpening using NIK Sharpener Pro.

Textures and edge effects added and selectively masked.

TULIPS – Stacked Image Capture

This is a version of the image shown below with textures and edge treatment.
Canon 70 – 200, 2.8 IS lens – Exposure Triad f 5.6, 1/25 sec ISO 100
This is a stack of 20 individual captures focus bracketed.

Looking to do something different with a few tulips that were a part on an arrangement brought over by a friend I decided on “Image Stacking” to attain great depth of field at a fairly wide aperture.  A Canon 7D with a Canon 70 – 200, 2.8 IS lens – Exposure Triad f 5.6, 1/25 sec ISO 100 was used for the two images as shown below.  Each image is a stack of 20 individual captures focus bracketed front to back.

Charleston South Carolina

The PSA Conference was absolutely fantastic.  Between sessions one did get some time to shoot.  I found Edisto and Folly beaches to be two of the most interesting photo locations.
