Lucifer Falls

Going through some older images and trying some new editing techniques. This is a shot I took last fall at Robert H Treman State Park in Ithaca, NY.

Look for image critique and thoughts on sharpness

Many of the photos I see on this site are indeed spectacular. A primary trait I've noticed is sharpness, ultra-sharpness. After all, everyone loves a super sharp photo, right? I've been messing around with an old Nikon 35mm f/1.4 AIS lens known for being soft when used wide open. Here is a recent example. I kind of like how it turned out, but...

Busy waterfall

I took this image last summer in august, at 18h in the afternoon. At that moment there were at least 20 people in the place swimming and refreshing themselves. I was struggling to find a clean view over the waterfalls, and even more looking for a long exposure. Even the dificulties I was able to make the picture and I had just to remove 6...

GLT 18-11-15

These were digital additions to my ongoing Ground Level Tango series, which is a yearlong exploration of the wetlands between my house and the Perkiomen Creek. They're not quite as sharp as they might be because I shot them through the kitchen and second-floor master bedroom windows. And they're handheld with a very long lens. Postprocessing in...

Devil's Kettle

Judge C. R. Magney State Park is a state park of Minnesota, on the northern shore of Lake Superior. The park is best known for the Devil's Kettle, an unusual waterfall and rock formation in which half of the Brule River disappears into a pothole.

Devils Kettle. Image made July, 2018. I figured I'd ask the experts, CC please?

Low light shot on MFT camera.

Took this shot of the crescent moon reflected in some water a the base of a rock during low tide last week (Dillon Beach CA). It was an unplanned shot, I'd put the camera away for the day as it was pretty dark by this time. Micro 4/3 cameras are not known for their low light capabilities so I rarely ever look for night shots. But as we were...

historical Lava Eruption 2018, Hawaii.

2018 Historical lava eruption in Leilani Estates on the Big Island of Hawaii changes the topography of the island forever. (photo 1) "The Intersection" June 26, 2018. During an over flight of Fissure 8 lava channel I captured this abstract image. I fell in love with the way the it flows through the image as it takes you along with it. The...


This is a classic one! I shot this in 2017 but edited it again a few days ago. I was really lucky with the weather :) Shot with a Canon 700D

The Plunge

This is part of the Linville River right before it plunges over 90 feet down Linville Falls. Any thoughts on the editing of this photo?

Horseshoe Falls.... CC greatly appreciated!

Question: What's the best thing about cold, cloudy weather?
Answer: Nobody is playing in the water and ruining your landscape shot! lol!

It was a chilly 34 degrees in the morning so I figured it was a great time to drive out to Musgrove Mill. This is a Revolutionary War historical site with trails following the path of the Patriots...

How would you fix this blown out area?

I'm really happy with this shot, but I ended up with a blown out area on the left where a building was reflecting and I didn't notice it. Can someone point me to a tutorial or give me some advice on how I might fix that? I'm using CS4 currently, but willing to go to the subscription if i need to.

Fall Swirls

I took this shot during the peak of this fall's transformation. This was a 20 second exposure. the bubbles at the bottom of the falls get caught in a whirlpool and create a swirl effect. The water was moving so slow that I was able to keep the leaves in the forground completely sharp while still blurring the water.
