King’s Canyon – Grizzly Falls

This photo was tough because I wanted to try to blur the water, but I don’t have a tripod or anything to steady the camera.  Also, it was extremely bright out.  This was shot at F22 with  a 1/5th second exposure time at ISO100.  I basically tried to get the longest possible exposure time given the conditions.  The water was moving fast enough that the amount of blur made me happy.  The tough part was trying to get it to look good.

The image on the left is the original one that I had processed using Canon’s software 2 years ago.  I did some HDR processing on the image to the right to try and see if I could improve it a little.  It looked unnatural at first but I think that is mostly due to the colors on my desktop being quite off.
