For this image, I wanted to focus on just the lower falls. I love the triple falls as it adds a lot more interest to me because it isn’t just a straight drop of water, similar to how layers of cascades make a waterfall more interesting. I also had to use this great log as foreground.
To compensate for the low light and distance with the foreground, I eight total images with four different focal points and two exposures. I then blended the four focal points at each exposure in Photoshop and then blended those two images to get the correct exposure (1/2 second) for the entire scene and then the faster exposure I wanted just in the water to maintain some of that definition.
