Top of the Falls

top of fallsFriends, not sure that i liked this image, but i will post it to see if anyone likes it.  This is the top of Big Manitou Falls in Pattison State Park in northern Wisconsin.  It is an HDR image so the water is rendered very blurry, but the rocks and background trees are sharp. I like the control that an HDR image gives me, so enjoy. til Tomorrow MJ

Back At It

falls hdrFriends, I thought that returning to my images of Big Manitou Falls might help to refresh my creativity that has been a bit lacking lately.  I guess after photoing the Whooping Crane, I thought “I can’t do any better and everything else is boring”, but i need to push onward.  Winter is coming and all the boys are thinking deer hunting, so the orange clothing is lying about the living room, the guns are cleaned, the rifles sighted in and Saturday morning all the Wisconsin hunters will be out.  This image is an HDR that was made from three images, just to show that HDR can have a natural look.  til Tomorrow MJ


Looking West


Friends, standing near the top of Big Manitou Falls in Pattison State Park, the mixed foliage from pine and deciduous trees caught my eye.  A cloudy day with little direct light made the scene appear kind of drab, so this is an HDR image to capture the full range of colors.  HDR is high dynamic range and is a composite of an underexposed image, right on exposure image and overexposed image in a post-processing software, in this case, photoshop.  I think this was an improvement over the straight  exposure dictated by the camera exposure meter.  What do you think? til Tomorrow MJtop of falls

Crashing Water

pattison falls lowerFriends, a visit to Pattison State Park and the waterfalls, this is Big Manitou Falls and just a small segment.  I loved the side falls and the lovely green surroundings, evergreens even in the depths of winter. The sound of water crashing down after our brief snowfall was overwhelmingly loud. Can you hear it?? til Tomorrow MJ
