Weekly Photo – January 24, 2011
As a break from winter images I thought I would show this image taken from the West Opabin Trail in Yoho National Park in British Columbia. I liked the way the sun was filtering along the path and used my Canon 17mm TS-E lens to capture the moment. The shift feature allowed me to keep the tree trunks straight up and down. The image is a combination of Photomatix HDR with some hand-blending in Photoshop. I kept the lens flare in the photo on purpose because I liked the effect. The second image below was done exactly the same way and was taken just a bit further up the path. I could not decide which image I like best and so included them both.
