Resumidero Falls

Uploaded: May 24, 2008


My dog and I took the day off and headed for God's country today. We were on top of 1 of the highest peaks in our area when a storm rolled in. But because I had my new ND filter and because it was also overcast, for the 1st time I got a shot I can use of the Resumidero Falls. Usually the rocks glare so bad you can't see the rainbow of colors in them. I hope the deep vivid rock colors show like they did on my monitor.

Exif: F Number: 9, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 400, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 70.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D

Nicely done Aggie, I love the way you framed the falls. If you return here on a sunny day a polarizer filter will take care of the glare. #930111

Thankx so much, Robert. But a polorizer never did the job. Living in NM, I always have a polarizer on my lens. I can't count how many pix I've thrown out of this falls. I'm just grateful to finally have one that didn't glare out. #5986033

We get days like that here in Florida as well. Although I used a polarizer on every shot in my Green Cay series the skies were blown out in almost every shot. But that makes it easier to remove the sky in PS and replace it. #5993457
