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! #471637

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. #2948729

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 #3084006

Daniel G. Flocke 7/26/2006 10:04:35 AM

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. #3084502

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.
