I took this photo in the natural oasis near the river Bussento, all the valley around the river is a dense bush downhill. I struggled not a little downhill to reach this location where a series of small waterfalls are explained in the river, the way is very impervious but the downhill, and especially the uphill 🙂 surely worth it!
I created this image with my nd1000 filter for about 60 second time long exposure, I used 7-shot bracketing function to have a full range of exposure, underexposed shots were very useful to save the leaves moved by the wind
I take the two best exposures and I blended them using luminosity masks. With dodge and burn I recover some underexposed spot in the frame and I fixed lights around the water flow. I incresed the yellow colors of the leafs using my filter autumn colors, you can find it inside TTS Fast Panel free downloadable here
With a warm filter I added more yellows to the highlights and more glow adding a slight orton effect. I increased the highlights coming to the top using luminosity masks applied to lights and always using lm, I increased darks subtracting lights to avoid to overexpose the other lights in the frame
I really hope you will find this usefull. I always love to hear that from you!
