Reflections @ Beauty Creek, Canada
#landscapephotography , #photographyworkflow , #howtophotograph

I love reflections and on our visit to Jasper we got lots of chances to photograph these stunning reflections. The clouds were breaking up fast and we I took several shots with different composition to include reflections.

How was this image created?
This is a manually blended image using our iHDR workflow and a 3 stop Hard GND filter. The edge of the filter was aligned with the angle of the mountains. Because I wanted to see the reflections of the clouds, I did not use a circular polarizer. Overall exposure and processing was adjusted to be able to see the details in every part of the image...if you look closely you can see the under water and the reflections at the same time.

Now if only I can get rid of the ugly black border on a Portrait Format shots!!!

Enjoy & Share.

Beautiful photo and great process!
 
beutiful,yes.....but not a photograph, we need to have a better way to seperate the two. I just prefer To see what a person can capture with a single click and basic adjustments, whatever that means anymore. I like HDR I guess, Just think it's a couple steps past what photography is about. Lamenting, not ranting.....; )
 
+Courtney Tucker As much as I would also wish to build a house next to this spot it would ruin the scene. There is however a campground just half a mile or so behind me. :-)))
 
I love that sky, Jay. Really beautiful!

Superb shot +Jay Patel ! I love how the clouds and the reflected ones make the compoisition so interesting.
I agree with you about the black borders!

Incredible composition, color and lines. Inspiring! I feel like painting it. I am an artist and would love to give it a shot. What do you say?
 
i brns my eye
becus it is so prity
 
Amazing +Jay Patel. Did you put the angle of the GND filter slightly above or slightly blow the line of the mountains, if that makes sense?
 
No one paints a picture like God can, and only he could arrange the eye-brain-perception and coordination so that we might see it. beautiful pic
 
+Jerry Johnson I dont remember...I adjust it so that I cant see the demarcation line (I am not able to tell where the filter is located). Further more the blending takes care of any slight discrepancies caused by the filter.
 
Thanks Jay! I haven't purchased a GND filter yet, but I have studied them a bit. :-)

This is spectacular. I love the color contrast of the foreground to the receding background.

I love the reflection its awsome!

Lovely colours and composition +Jay Patel - the HDR work looks very natural. I blend manually using luminosity masks (see Tony Kuyper's website for more details - www.goodlight.us)
 
cool and awesome and amaizing

I love the clouds and its reflection forming a circle. It draws me into picture. Thanks for sharing.

Here is an image I took in Jasper. I think using the polarizer in my image helps as it shows the rock bed in the lake. This is not an HDR nor a blend. It was processed from a single image and the colors are almost straight out of camera.
