Default Edith Creek

went up to Mt. Rainier last night, got some night shots, sunrise at Tipsoo, some waterfalls, and some more or less "generic" images of Rainier and environs. i'm exhausted - 4 hours sleep last night, tops, and that in the car, so i probably won't be doing much editing tonite!

this is Edith Creek, taken from the bridge just above Myrtle Falls. aside from a bit of cropping to remove vignetting in the sky, and resizing for the web, this image is straight from the camera... 5D, 24-135 @ 24mm, .6 seconds. yes, you read right - 6/10 of a second on a bright, sunny day... stacked a polarizer and an ND filter, and turned the ISO down to 50, so i could get that nice, soft flow of the creek over the rocks...

Nice shot Rocky, well capured. I haven't been up there in a few years now, thanks for the memories.

A post card. A wall hanger. Brilliant.

I agree that this is a very good shot. If you shoot in RAW, Camera Raw will open the image and in that program is a tool called "lens correction">click on profile tab>click "enable lens profile corrections" and your vignetting goes away plus in that same window are sliders for vignetting correction.

Hi Rocky

Beautiful simple classic image.

I also found the vignetting somewhat distracting / annoying.

The colours are very natural, and composition sweet.
