About This Image
This waterfall is near the Lake Blanche trailhead up Big Cottonwood Canyon in northern Utah.
I shot it early in the morning and used an ND filter so that I could set the shutter to 2 seconds without over-exposing it.
Out of the 20 or so shots of the waterfall, I liked this photo the best because the angled composition seems to form a slanted Z.
In Photoshop, I resized it to 1000 pixels tall, applied an "unsharp mask" at a threshhold of 5, amount 100%; and radius of 1.2. It was then saved "for the web" and optimized to 500 kb. Of course, when it's uploaded to TLF, it's resized again, so this should end up with a fairly decent photo on the website.
