Breathe Light

The photos were endless here at Rocky Mountain National Park. I will certainly have more to share for a long time to come.  This was taken somewhere along the trail from Bear Lake to Emerald Lake. I am sure that I stopped every 5- 10 minutes to take some photos, making an hour and a half hike more like 3 or 4.

Photo Details:

Camera: Canon 5D Mark II

Lens: Canon EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM

Settings: 6 bracketed exposures @ f/5.6, 33mm Focal Length, ISO 100

Photomatix did a good job with the bracketed exposures. I took the result and blended it back in Photoshop with the -1, 0, +1 exposures. Contrast was added with OneOne’s Perfect Effects, and Sharpening with NIK Sharpener Pro, Final adjustments and cropping in Lightroom 5.
