Default (Upper) Elbow Falls, Kananaskis, Alberta

I say "upper" as just to left of the photo is where the water drops over the edge but as I posted the actual falls before in this forum Elbow Falls, Kananaskis, Alberta , I wanted to spend some time looking beyond what others normally photograph and try my luck looking at other perspectives.

Woke up early this morning to get to location before the sunrise and just as I was taking my shots the sun rose to give it's new light on the trees. It got very bright quite quickly so I used my 4 stop Neutral Density Hoya filter to keep the tones darker.

This shot consists of 10 landscape photos stitched using cs4.

5dMII, 24 - 70mm 2.8, 4 stop ND filter, f22, ISO 50, 10 - 1 second images

kevin.

this one is breathtaking. one of my favorite shots posted recently.

it was worth the early rise. the lighting in this shot is fantastic. the golden light on the foreground is great. the smooth water is great. the dark tones in the foliage is great. it all comes together really nicely.

my only critique is the sky. there are some muddy grey "smudges" in it. what is that?

Hey Dustin, nothing was done to the sky. What you see is what it is.

Glad you liked it!

Somehow I can see the same pp effect you do on stars as you do on water. It's dazzling.
