On the Diamond Lake - Roseburg highway...first fall heading toward Roseburg...actually looking across stream, not the falls itself.

Anyway, thinking about print possibilities? Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Bob

To me the shadows lack detail, I might try lightening them up a touch. I did a little burning to the shadows of the downed trees, used luminosity masks to bring back some detail in the blacks, a curves adjustment and a small gamma adjustment. Of course your vision may be different so just a suggestion for possible alternate processing.

Thanks Barbara,

I'll revisit - tried luminosity masks but got so snarled with the light-lights everything turned to mushy gray.

Ended using a gradient in ACR on right side, perhaps the same, opposite direction is necessary for left.

Have you traveled that highway from Crater Lake and Diamond Lake back down to "the 5"?

Looks like the fallen are trying to create a railway.

I had the same impression.

Barbara: Nicely done. Lots for me to learn in PS.

Bob: Nicely seen. Talk about leading lines!

Yes Bob, I have traveled that Hwy and its a beautiful scenic drive. I usually head N on the 5 and head from the 5 towards Diamond Lake. I am about 1 1/2 hrs S. of Roseburg. Funny, I was just up there yesterday on the way to the coast and stopped in Roseburg for lunch. It's a lovely image.

Thanks,

Furthermost (coming from Crater Lake) pull-off we explored was Watson Falls - lengthy hike and substantial drop but could not make it work photographically.

Bob, great composition. I really like the contrast between the shaded area on the left and the light coming through the trees on the right.

Hope you don't mind me playing around. I did a vertical gradient to make the left darker and some local adjustments on the right to increase exposure/clarity/saturation. Definitely a different take on the vision.

Thanks for the rework, more eyes the better.

I tried HDR but the results were flat and comic-booky - still room for play to get it right. Late morning sun, and given you're locale is CO, you understand the very brilliant and harsh light.

Regards,

Bob

Have to admit I considered trying to walk across to the other side but given where we were and the water temp thought the better of it. Of course a soaked DSLR never occurred to me.

Why not just use a bit of simple shadow fill and perhaps highlight recovery (in ACR / Lr) ?
Mind you, I don't know how much shadow detail you can recover from D2x photos. You'd get plenty out of a low-ISO D800 photo
