Hey,

Great shot - any chance of a quick how-to? I have often wondered when people refer to bracketing exposures - it took me a while to get my camera to do that properly now what do you do with the two images?

Thanks, Dom

In photoshop or gimp or any other editor that lets you use layer masks is the key to a quick blend. Otherwise you'll have to use the paint brush and manually do it.

Step 1: Load the light frame into the editor

Step 2: Load the dark frame into a seperate session

Step 3: Copy the dark frame

Step 4: Paste the dark frame into the light frame (it should be a seperate layer) and close the other session that contains just the dark frame as you don't need it now.

Step 5: Add a layer mask (all white) to the dark frame layer

Step 6: Copy the light frame

Step 7: Press ALT and left click on the layer mask, the layer should turn white

Step 8: Paste the light frame from step 6 into the white layer mask, It should now turn black and white.

Step 9: Run Guasian (spelling?) blur at a 35-45 radias on the layer mask

Step 10: Click on the background (light frame) and you should be done. (Note: If using GIMP you will need to merge visible layers after this step to notice the effect)

Hope this helps.

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to let you guys know that I wrote an article about this waterfall on my website at www.mattspinelli.com/mingoFalls.html

It covers the location, trail, and other details about the waterfall. I also have figured out how to add satellite imagery and maps to my website too! The map is interactive allowing you to zoom in and out and look around. It uses google maps technology.

I know that this article is about a year after I went there but I thought I'd write about it anyway.
