This photograph is taken at McConnells Mill State Park in Lawrence County, PA. Waterfalls are one of my main subjects, and I just picked this one as it is one of my newest photographs and I'm extremely happy with how it turned out. Many of the waterfalls in my area are dry unless we get a large rainfall, so it leads to an almost obsessive behavior of trying to get to these locations in time. In this case I wasn't able to get out until the next morning after a day of rain, but it paid off. I managed to get quite a few good shots from this outing, and it also helped to solidify my confidence in the K 28 3.5.

I forget which aperture I used on this shot but it was probably f8 or f11, and I had a B+W polarizing filter on the lens.

Workflow: opened raw file in DCU5 as it was a pixel shift image and then saved as a .tif. Opened in Adobe Camera Raw where I added +25 to the shadows, -3 to blacks, +5 to clarity, and +15 to vibrance.
