The first one blows my mind. Does it employ the HDR workflow? I really think you nailed that one.

Thanks Marty....

The first shot has HDR blending done for the area behind the bridge as it was VERY light (no contrast)just brought it forward a bit to even it out with the foreground....I could have left it and strongly considered both, but the blend ended out having more stregnth to it.

The second shot is with ACR in PSCS3....no HDR blending. I felt the small amount of back area that is a tad lighter adds depth...so opted not to do any such work on it.

The 3rd one has HDR blending as well.....this one was pretty tough. Not 100% happy, but I didnt shoot it in the best conditions (I like diffused soft light....this was pretty harsh with the sun coming up behind the falls...but it gave the ice some sparkle.

Hey Roman,

Awesome photos. The first two are my favorites of the collection. Believe it or not, we are in mid-January and we still have not seen any snow here...just a few flakes. I also am very impressed with how you have put together the HDR images.

These are fantastic. The falls are beautiful in the snow and ice! Great shots, Roman! This might be a dumb question but what is ACR?

Thanks James and Dee Dee,

ACR = Adobe Camera Raw....the default raw processor for photoshop CS2/3.

BTW....James, when will the blend article happen?

Ahhh, Roman!! I continue to like you because of your beautiful photographs and I continue to dislike you for making me buy lenses!! *LOL* (Tokina 12-24 in bag now all due to Roman's exquisite photography with this lens).
These waterfall shots are beautiful.... well done under difficult lighting situations!
