A Bit of a Reflection of Cathedral Rock
Lens: DA 16-85 Camera: K-3 II Photo Location: Sedona, AZ ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/20s Aperture: F16 
Posted By: ToddK, 08-17-2018, 05:58 PM

We were in Sedona last weekend and were hoping for some strong summer monsoon thunderstorms while we were there, but only got a few drops of rain. They had a significant rain several days earlier which caused Oak Creek to flow across this rock formation, and a few puddles like this one were all that were left. This is probably the most photographed rock in the area and I have seen some really spectacular ones. I have patience...I will keep trying

This is a very nice view, and the reflection you did get is gorgeous.

.

Nice composition - I like the low angle. I've been there, and your photo is a bit over saturated from what I remember.


Also, this seems like the perfect situation for a pixel shift image.

If shooting this again, you might want to consider doing a pixel shift image.

If you want to get really fancy, you could do 3 pixel shift images with one being focused close, one mid-range, and one focusing in the distance. Then combine all of them together in software for incredible depth, color and detail.

Thanks for the comment Fenwoodian. I looked at the original and it does seem a bit oversaturated.

Thanks for your advice. I played around with several methods and this one was shot with pixel shift. However, I don't know how to process pixel shift images since I have rarely used it. I use Lightroom and PS, but I don't know if they even do anything with images shot with pixel shift. I see it is time that I figure it out and obtain the software.
