Spent the day looking for some Fall colors and ended up at Salmon Creek in the Willamette National Forest.

Thanks Tim. I use PhotoShop CS3 and I also use Nikon Capture NX as I feel I get better RAW conversions out of it than ACR.

It also has some really nice color selection tools that let me do isolated color adjustments as opposed to global ones.

Wow, nice captures Andrew!!

 

I also find that Capture NX is the converter for Nikon RAW files :)

 

Did you use a ND Filter?

 

Any one of those would look great hanging on the wall...

Andrew,

You take some of the best river photos I've ever seen. The rivers in your area are beautiful and you do a great job of capturing them. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, Andrew, these are beautiful. I agree with Matt, the shots are amazing; the last one is particularly serene.

 

Would you mind sharing details on the wide-angle lens you used? Filters?

Thanks guys for the nice comments, appreciate it..

 

These are all single exposures with no HDR software used.

I shot these with a 12-24mm Nikkor f/4 [email protected] 12mm.

They were all shot @ f/8 with a B&W ND3 10 stop ND filter on.

They ranged in shutter speed from 1.5 - 2 minutes.

I set the focus to infinity and by using f/8 I can achieve complete focus from foreground to back ground.

They were shot in RAW(what I always shoot) and converted to 16bit TIFF's in Nikon Capture NX software.

Also do some RAW color adjustments in NX.

Then sent over to PS CS3 for final levels and sharpening.

Andrew, I am not sure I understand how this is done. Maybe I should ask John regarding the Canon line up but I am not sure how I set my focus to infinity... My first thought was, "How in the hell did Andrew get the focus with that DoF using f8". That is super cool. I need to play around now.

On Nikkor lenses there are markers on it that show the focus distance in feet and meters. At the far end there is an infinity symbol.

I set it to that and combined with the smaller aperture give me the large focal plane.

If I am really close to the fore ground I will go smaller on the aperture to get a little more DOF.
