Upper Ponytail Falls, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Posted by Don Smith (California, United States) on 24 October 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

Do you fully understand your camera sensor's dynamic capture range and why it is so important? I discuss this topic in-depth in my new blog: Understand Your Camera’s Dynamic Range And Use It to Your Advantage.

Understanding when to "expand" and "contract" your scene's tonality range is paramount to producing an image that matches your creative vision of the scene. With this composition of Upper Ponytail Falls in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge, I underexposed the highlights -1 and processed for the shadows (kind of like the old B&W film days). You can see my original unprocessed RAW by clicking on the above link.
