This composite HDR image was captured with a Canon 30D DSLR camera body through a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens that was set to the 17mm focal length. A 555 Manfrotto tripod and 222 pistol grip head were used with a remote shutter release cable. Five separate long exposures were merged in Photomatix Pro v4.1 to reveal the finished image. The aperture was f/10 with 1.3, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 second exposures. The total exposure time of the finished image was 11.8 seconds. The camera’s ISO was set to 100 for all exposures.

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.

    Gene, you have a stunning image of nature’s beauty at it’s finest, portrayed expertly through your knowledge of lenses, exposures, and composition. Your illustration of the rushing water creates a subtle sense of movement and that contrasts wonderfully with the stillness and permanence of the rocky walls. The colors are compelling and this image demands viewing in the larger format. Congratulations on a lovely image.

  • Thank you very, very kindly, Dave! I was very fortunate that the conditions were absolutely perfect for catching this type of shot. The sun was setting and there was no wind at all. The only thing moving was the water. It was a flawless day in every way.

    Best wishes,

    Gene
