Before And After | Honeoye Falls | New York

I have been working towards photographing the 200 waterfalls in this book that I have.

Today I was able to make it to a few more. I went to the village of Honeoye Falls in the Finger Lakes region of New York.

The first subject I wanted to photograph there was the waterfall, Honeoye Falls.

I wanted to share a before and after photo series here. The image straight out of the camera and then the image after I did some post processing.

When I took this photo I had 2 filters stacked together at the end of my lens. One a polarizing lens to cut the glare from the sun. The second filter a neutral density filter to cut the light reaching my sensor.

This combination of filters allowed me to shoot at a slow shutter speed even in the bright daylight and white snowy scenery.

The drawback is I knew the stacked filters would create vignetting around the corners of the image.

I shot the image extra wide so that I would have room to compensate for the vignetting. I used lens profile corrections in Lightroom. Then cropped the image in from the edges and corners to eliminate the vignetting and other distracting elements from the image.

Then I used a preset for winter scenery that I like to create a more vibrant and cold look.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Tamron AF 18-200mm f3.5-6.3. Focal length 18mm. ISO 100. 3.0 sec. f/13.

Success! You're on the list.
