This picture is always from the natural valley near the river Bussento, the valley around the river is wonderful and full of this great waterfall spot. This is probably the main area of the oasis, the an old mill who as long lost his wheel, where in its place now there’s a small waterfall
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, I started working on the image with the longest exposure time going to recover lights lightly on the darker images
By selecting the best exposures I blended them using luminosity masks. saving the rocks from overexposure and the flow of the waterfall. Dodge and burn has helped too much to finish this work.
Also in this picture I incresed the yellow colors of the leafs using my filter autumn colors. I also launched details using TTS Fast Panel. I used orton effect to create a soft dreamy look and I pushed up lights coming from the top part of the frame, as final touch I fixed some contrast and lights adding a small vignette
I hope you will like this and find usefull my info. I always love to ear this from you!
