Weekend Side-trip to Healey Falls
This past holiday long weekend, we took a side trip to a place called Healey Falls. An impressively wide waterfall with a stepped limestone bed, it's a little dry this time of year, but one section was definitely worth photographing. The exposed limestone in itself presented some great opportunities to work with my wide angle lens.
It also gave me an opportunity to test out the LO-ISO settings on my D750. Basically, I get two "unofficial" lower than advertised ISO settings LO-1 and LO-2, which effectively reduce my ISO to as low as 50, rather than the standard 100. This is rather handy on a bright sunny day, when I only have a polarizer for my 28-300mm lens, and none for my Rokinon 14mm. Every frame here (except the iPhone image) were exposed at LO-2 (ISO 50).
I spent some time pulling in the shadow detail as well; in Lightroom, using both local and global adjustments. The scene was VERY high contrast, but the RAW captures I made managed to retain quite a bit of shadow information.
