Nice photo! However, you have this pic labeled as being on Opal Creek. The actual location you have the pic placed at is on Battle Ax Creek.

Very beautiful photo!! Full of harmony!!

such beautiful color and movement! How do you do it? is it the camera or the editing?

Ron Cooper on March 18, 2009

Hi Cherie, The camera is important, but this photograph is the result of extra editing. The photo is an HDR (high dynamic range) image. I made three separate exposures,one at 0 ev, one two stops over exposed, and one at two stops underexposed. All three exposures are brought into an HDR program ( I use Photomatix), and an algorithm holds the mid tones while keeping highlights from getting blown out, and shadows from going black. I also did some editing in Photoshop.
