Isolated Lower Panther Creek Falls


Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington

July 24, 201718 mm: ISO 400: f/11: 1/2 sec.

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.
