St Louis River

St. Louis River rapids from the swayback bridge in Jay Cooke State Park MN This is my second choice for  ‘best of class’ in the landscape category. I love how the water flows. The rocks are tack sharp and their crisp texture complements the bleakness of the sky. The warmth of the forest promises some shelter from the raging river and the storm. It is the post processing and presentation that make this picture so striking. In Lightroom I created the HDR and then played all my games in image enhancement: crop; sky enhancements; trees/center brightness, clarity, some contrast; sharpen the rocks and this time the trees too; soften the water and clouds; and clone out imperfections. I printed this on 16” x 24” polished aluminum. On metal there is less ink  in the lighter areas. More light is reflected off these  areas making the image “shine”. As you move around and the light source  moves the water dances and flows. You can’t see this on a computer  display but you should see it in person. I get tingles when I look at  it. (Okay, I hear you, get a life Dick.)

I printed this on 16” x 24” metal. The polished aluminum has less ink in the brighter portions. More incident light is reflected off these areas making the image “shine”. As you move around and the light source moves the water dances and flows. You can’t see this on a computer display but you should see it in person. I get tingles when I look at it.
