The Great Henge – Molina Watefalls

The Great Henge – Molina Watefalls

Tags : 

This week I propose a photo of the Molina waterfalls near Verona, a photo taken this summer as you can see from the beautiful bright colors and the intense green of the surrounding vegetation

These waterfalls are located within an area served and equipped where it is possible to go up the river and meet many and suggestive waterfalls like this one

I shot this location getting as close as possible to the water and first making a series of bracketing shots using low iso, in order to increase the shooting time and to have the desired number of shots to digital blend the exposures. After this series I also captured one more shot at 3200 iso to save all the leafs in the scene from movement

The wind and the waterfall movement here moved all the leaves a lot and it would have been impossible to take a shot with the static leafs still as I wanted. this is a little trick I talk about in my guide all you need to know to photograph waterfalls

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I digital blended my shots using TTS PRO, than I used the extra image with freezed trees and leafs to paint over the blended image the leafs without movements

I correct colour cast in the image, than with the help of luminosity masks I fixed contrast and highlights. After this I increased the warm color of the light coming between the trees than I launched a soft orton effect to create a myterious look of the wood around

With the help of the glow tool I create a light glow around the area of the waterfall and on the light coming from the leafs

I increased vibrance of the colors decreasing the green than I created a vignette to give more prominence to the waterfall

Nikon 14-24 f/2,8 (used @14mm)
