Daniel and I left Jessica and Grant in the car and made the short hike up the watershed at the back of the campground to Pack Rat Falls. It was about 5:45 and the sun was going down behind us..
I used Photoshop a lot in these pictures. I used a technique I read on Digital Photography School http://digital-photography-school.com/hdr-style-results-using-layers-in-photoshop that simulates an HDR process. I also used Photoshop's built in HDR method called Photomerge. I shot bracketed exposures, then had Photoshop blend them for me. The key to using techniques like this is to make your pictures look like they came right out of the camera the way you see them on the screen. If you look closely at these pictures, you can see that I haven't achieved that yet.
Daniel and I got back to the car to find Jessica and Grant patiently waiting for us. ;)
