05.03.2012 Hop Brook Cascade

I captured this image in the fall of 2005.  Although I liked it a lot, it had a couple of problems and I have just re-worked it using newer processing tools to control the whites better and open the shadows just a touch to lessen the effects of the “black holes”. The upper center remains dark as it was captured too blocked up to open.

I have visited Holland Glen many times over the last several years but this, the first image I took there, remains my favorite.

    This is a great intimate little landscape, Steve…well done!


    • Thanks Greg…and thanks so much for all the post visits. 🙂 This is the third or fourth iteration of this image. As each new tool-set comes along (in this case TK’s luminosity masks and Viveza) I return.


  4. So this is a tiny waterfall I take it from the size of the leaves. How cool is that!



    • Thanks Sharon. Yes it is a tiny one. There are actually two larger waterfalls upstream but this brook is a series of delightful little cascades such as this one. It’s one of my favorite spots for return visits.
