Yosemite Falls

Massive multi-part HDR panorama of Yosemite and Half Dome

I’ve been sitting on this shot of Yosemite for a few years, never getting around to editing it. Honestly, I’m glad I waited. A few years ago, I would never have been able to do it justice. The processing techniques, as well as the artistic vision, were simply out of my reach.

I have improved as a photographer since then, but more importantly, I’ve improved as an artist. I can’t go back in time to retake my old photos, but I can use everything I’ve learned to turn them into something greater.

This one is a 6 part panorama with selective HDR data from 54 exposures.

Moonrise Bridge

Wide-angle long exposure HDR

When I saw the moon shining this bright through the clouds, I couldn’t resist going out and trying to capture it.

This one was taken the same night that this recent upload was.

This one was a 5-exposure HDR panorama, with mostly RAW data manually composed. It was taken with the D800E using the 16-35 VR lens.
