Subdued, yet dramatic at the same time. Hmmmmm... that's hard to pull off, Fred! Great shot!

Nice eye to catch this for a FG subject. Unique and original in a place that has been a few million photographers.

Thanks for all the comments!
I have been trying to get this image for a while. The light was there for about 20 seconds but got blocked by the overcast day. Luckly I was ready waiting for it. I used a 3-stop gradual filter and a polarizer. I'm glad I was able to attached the Lee system on my Canon 17mm f/4L TS-E as seeing here.
All the best,
Fred

Fine comp and beautiful delicate lighting on the fg grasses, as well as wonderful highlight on the peak. Really love the mood.

Using the filter holder precludes much in the way of shift use for the 17 TSE? The trees are not leaning back, was perspective distortion addressed in post?
Very nice shots from your last Yosemite trip! You've mad good use of the 17 TSE.

Beautiful image from top to bottom! Took a look at the review. The difference in noise is incredible! While I'm a Canon girl and I noticed that the vast majority of the images posted in the review were Canon shots, I gotta hand it to Nikon for that incredible noise control. Amazing.

Fred,
I was at Yosemite the day after it snowed last week, what a great site..thanks for the comparison of the D800 and the 5D3...got a 5D3 and like it much better then the 5D2...focus is so much better..
Thanks for a great web site and the reviews...

I see yo live in San Clemente...I lived there in 1957, right behind the library, while at Camp Pendelton...great spot...

thanks again for what you do
Les

Hi Mike,
I used the custom adapter in all my 17mm shots. For this picture, (El Capitan) I used about 5mm of upwards shift in order to keep my ball-head level and compose the shot without distortion. The custom adapter for the 17mm TS-E allows you to shift up until about 4-5mm. I had to shave the edges of the Lee mount in order to avoid vignetting when rotating the polarizer filter. See the image below. Thanks for your comments!

Fred, this is very artistic. Subtle and very life-like.

Ansel would be proud of this nice shot.
But maybe not of your spelling.
Captain ... It's El Capitan !!
