About the Image(s)

Title: Roaring River
Info: ISO 100, F-16, amp. priority, 0.7 seconds, 28mm with matrix metering.

I spent an afternoon shooting this small river and was intrigued by the circular pattern with leaves that show up in the corner of this image. The leaves have not been so brilliant this year, but they have been warm and quite nice. This is a three image HDR, processed with Photomatix, then slight adjustments in PS. I used a tripod.

Hi Wanda, liked you composition, but thougth the photo was rather flat. I brighten a -24, and used contrast of 24. Then I used curves to add some punch. What do you think? Really like the whirlpool and the fall colors.   Posted: 11/11/2020 16:34:43

I agree that the composition is great but it needs some snap/contrast. I would darken the foreground a bit and then crop off some of the trees at the top. Then the main focus would be the circular portion of the swirling leaves.   Posted: 11/19/2020 17:58:28

The image is so peaceful. I do like the "pop" suggestions. Excellent composition.

Wanda, I think The increase of contrast that Richard gave to the photo, really enhanced the look of the river! Nice capture!   Posted: 11/23/2020 19:26:07

Hi Wanda:

I love this image, Beautiful reflection of the leaves in the water. BEAUTIFUL circular pattern of the water and leaves with the slower shutter speed in the foreground. Great job! I just think it needs more contrast.   Posted: 11/24/2020 21:25:09
