p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Night Tail Falls


I spent Saturday night (all night) in Yosemite shooting scenes by moonlight waiting for a chance to try to catch a shot of Horsetail Falls in the dark. I decided not to zoom in too tight on the falls to better show the night time environment. All shots are with a Canon 6D. Any comments are welcome.

Very nice, the last two especially. Looks like you got a lot of detail with that high ISO.

Hey Kyle,

Interesting shots here. I have shot Yosemite Valley with a full moon before and it is amazing how that moon turns night into day just about.

Your #1 is perhaps the most interesting, though I do wish it had more stars in it, or perhaps stationary stars. But I like the amount of light in the rest of the shot, it has a lit night time feel. With #2 and 3, both really look good. I don't really care for night shots that look like day shots, even if it is the moon that is lighting the scene. But #2 and 3 are pretty close to looking cool even being so well lit. Perhaps just a bit darker on the foreground...

I will say that you chose some pretty cool compositions here. With #2, I would actually have the apple tree I think it is, closer to the right edge to cut off that one scraggly set of branches that takes off on that right side.

Even though I think there could be a few minor edits still, I am really impressed with your work there.

Jim

Thank you Jim for taking the constructive feedback. I'd agree with pretty much all of it.
