Zion Canyon Overlook Trail (Utah)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed:
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/zion-canyon-overlook-trail-utah/

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photomatix, Photoshop
Bracketing: 7 shots (-3; -2; -1; 0, +1; +2; +3)

I find that Zion National Park is the most challenging place to photograph among all canyon locations I visited during my travel photography driving trip through Arizona, Utah, Nevada,  California.

Let me explain. Zion was my last canyon stop before driving to the deserts of Nevada. At that point, I was used to hiking or driving at the top rims of the canyons with the plane view in front and below me. It was always easy to find something interesting to photograph with multiple options for good compositions.

Zion is different. It is very narrow and you drive at the bottom of the canyon, and in most of the cases, you have to shoot up. I realized that even with my widest 10mm lens was not wide enough to fit everything I wanted to include in my composition. The tall trees were always in my way. The only solution was to hike up to the observation point and get a better view.

The featured photo is from the Canyon Overlook Trail. I find this location to be the most accessible (20min short and easy hike) with the observation point at the edge of a cliff and a breathtaking view of lower Zion Canyon.

Grand Manan Island – Southwest Head Light (New Brunswick)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/grand-manan-island-southwest-head-light-new-brunswick/

I love visiting Grand Manan Island which located in the heart of Bay of Fundy. I consider it to be one of the ultimate photography destinations. It is simply beautiful.

Normally, when I travel to Atlantic Canada, I dedicate one full day to spend on Grand Manan. I always take the very first ferry in the morning and after 2-hour ride I arrive at Grand Manan around 9am.

It is always foggy in the morning and you have to wait at least an hour for the sun to start burning fog away. Every time I visit Grand Manan, the fog start to disappear from the southern tip of the island – Southwest Head. This is where I always drive after arriving at the island and start my photo exploration from there.

This year it was no different, except that it took almost 3 hours for the fog to completely disappear.

Interesting fact: The Grand Manan has free public WiFi access and it covers the entire island, it is extremely convenient when you travel.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod (-1, 0, +1). The challenge was to find big enough spot to set up a tripod.

I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in The Minimalist Guide to Lightroom Editing.

First I applied Lightroom preset Natural from my Landscape Collection and later I used ToolKit to adjust exposure mostly because the photo was a bit underexposed.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Natural (2, 9, 17, 30)

HDR Processed: Lightroom, Photoshop HDR Pro
Bracketing: 3 shots (-2, 0, +2 )

This photo is from my last trip to Hawaii. Everything was challenging about this photo, starting with the location, the weather and the processing. All in all, it took 3 days and 12 shots to produce the final image.

Total processing time: 90min.

Edith Falls are arranged one after the other with a relatively small height. When there is high water on the river Katherine, waterfalls are extremely beautiful.
