The Way to the Waterfall (2 of 2)
This is last part of the way to the biggest waterfall in the park (see previous post too), which is in the middle top part of the picture. At that moment (in May) the waterfall was pretty dry but nevertheless the view was still awesome.
In my photography club was have a contest this month with the theme called Water
. We had half a year to come up with five images. Initially I wanted to show one of those two images but the base quality was way too low. Mainly due to 4 megapixels big, too much JPG compression (the artifacts are visible one looking at 100% size) and lack of sharpness (you can't compare a lens of a (old) compact camera with some used on a DSLR). The winning three images will be printed in large on an exhibition in September in Blankenberge (Uitkerke), Belgium).
Fortunately I already made several other images of the theme Water
which I will post on this blog after the contest is done.
TECH-INFO: In Photoshop I first removed the JPG artifacts with a plug-in then I made heavily use of masked adjustment layers of the curves tool and color selective tool. See here for a view before
