Curves

Curves by Allan J Jones Photography Curves

I liked the repetition of curves in this. and the contrast between the foreground curves and the background verticals.

This was an example of a scene where the colors didn’t provide anything additional. I try to look at images and see if the colors are critically important. If not, I try switching to Black and White. Sometimes it doesn’t work in B&W. This was a stronger image without the color.

Madison Falls Picnic Area (Winter)

The trailhead parking for accessing the Elwha River road is the (small) Madison Falls parking lot. Fortunately, in the winter, the traffic is not heavy. I was returning from my hike up to the bridge (about 6 miles round trip) carrying cameras and tripod … and the mists were moving through the valley. There are a couple of guys with their dog over on the picnic table to the left. They were admiring the view below:

Elwha River Road in Winter

This section of the Elwha River Road (technically the Olympic Hot Springs Road) is above the washout. The federal government shut down has added to the backlog of clean up and repair … including this section of road.

The peak in the background is not volcanic… just flat topped and duel peaked. It is snow covered, but I couldn’t get the blue tint out to my satisfaction. There was some mist coming up off the ferns on the right shoulder, where the sun was hitting the frost left from the night before… but it didn’t show up well.

This is an HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite of three images taken about a stop on either side of the ‘normal’ exposure setting. Combined in Lightroom Classic CC.
