With my late summer interest in waterfalls - I had great vision how this would turn out. In the end, I need to go back.
But not to lose the photo - or a learning opportunity - I decided to see what the difference is between a 1 shot HDR effect and a 3 shot HDR involving the motion of water.
I like to have the option with the water movement. The shot was set up on the slow side. Tripod for sure.
This is the basic shot.
Focal Length 32 mm
For the associated HDR bracket, I use EV values of +2 and -2.
Going back and doing it over again, I'd go with a faster speed. There are no DOF issues or concerns. Lesson learned - and a reason to go back.
This a composite of the 1 and 3 shots.
And so if I were going to work on a shot for this, I might go in this direction. I'd use the single shot. I'd try to pull out some of the greens and sharpen it up a bit.
I think the better plan would be to shoot with a higher speed, and let the 3 image merger get the effect of the moving water.
