Awesome perspective...

.... you can almost feel the warmth of the sunshine.
(Maybe because winter has been so long here, and I'm so ready for summer)

Re: Awesome perspective...

Thanks for the comment. We really did luck out with the weather.

Yeah, it was a rough winter by our Colorado standards. That May 12 snowstorm here in Fort Collins was not particularly welcome in my book!

Hi Nelson, is this a blend? Huge dynamic range.

Re: beautiful

Thanks Kane. Not a blend but processed in Lightroom and it does have a GND filter applied. The full sum of processing is:

Change white balance from as shot 4500 to a warmer 6000.
Add 6 ticks of fill light and black clipping to the entire image, shifting histogram slightly to the right.
Bumped saturation by 10 ticks (maybe a tad too much?)
Apply a -0.9 exposure GND to upper 25% of image (above trees on left) to remove blown out highlights on distant rocks.

Guess there are dozens of ways to accomplish something similar, but that's what I wound up with on this one.

Re: beautiful

I should have mentioned that it looks very natural.

Very soft, warm shot.

Tripod shot?
Almost looks like Jeff's carrying you!

Re: Very soft, warm shot.

Handheld at 1/60 sec. I was standing in the river. I tried to get Jeff to carry me but he wouldn't have any of it.
