    I love shooting in Yosemite and I try to get there 2 or 3 times a year. It is becoming more and more difficult to catch a composition that is unique!

    This was shot with a D2x & 12-24 DX zoomed all the way to 13mm :smile: , at 1/10s F22.

    Well you have done a great job.

  5. Hi Randy,

    Excellent composition, with lots of interests in the foreground. Did you use a graduated ND filter to keep the sky from blowing out?
  6. wonderful presentation

    Thanks for your nice comments, and to answer your question; Actually, I merged two images. I took the first exposing for the foreground, and the second exposing for the highlights. Due to the extreme "jaggedness" of the image, I couldn't make a grad ND work..

    It is definitely one of the "must shoot" locales. Thanks for your kind words!

    Thanks! (I think?)

  19. Just saying it looks fake.. just my opinion.. I know it is not but it is like those Michael Fatali shots.. the warm surreal light...
  20. But in regard to your shot I meant it looked surreal.. It was a great photo especially the colors....
