A Section of Upper Tehquamenon Falls
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Upper Tehquamenon Falls
Paradise, U.P. Michigan, USA

I drove back an hour north from Mackinaw City, to see these falls
on a cloudy day, it made such a difference in contrast and exposure.


Used:70-200mm F/2.8, 15 seconds at F/22, ISO 100, 2 stop ND + Polarizer.

    Unbelieveble image Daniel!
In the thumbnail I thought it was a gorgeous shawl but after reading your discription and clicking on the image I was blown away!
The colors are amazing as is the composition! I hope you have this hanging up somewhere, like a gallery!

Thank you Joannie, I was just in Michigan 2 weeks ago, I just finished the edits for day 6 (of 9). I just had to enter this. I plan on making some 12x18 prints, 18x24 framed.

Wow, this is an incredibly rich shot. Great tonal values and nice long exposure. I've never really seen this exact type of results before... excellent

Thanks you Marlon for your thoughts and comments.

In addition to above, in Photoshop CS, I adjusted the Hightlight 0% / Shadows +10-15%, then Sharpened Edges only, repeated until I got the results I wanted.
