I made it to Yosemite Valley yesterday, and I didn't miss all the color (though it's almost gone). I even got lucky and had clouds :D. Here's a few that turned out alright...

Shots #4, 5, and 6 are "Enfused" mergers of two frames for HDR (though I like a very mild form of HDR so you still see black shadows and blown highlights around the sun - the dynamic range shooting into the sun in Yosemite valley is very large!) All were taken with my brand new 5DII (got it on Monday - first Canon since I sold my AE-1 :D) and either the 17-40mm L (for most) or the 24-105mm L (#3 & #4)).

C & C are always appreciated, especially if you see something which looks artificial or over-processed. A lot of work went into trying to make these shots look like little work went into them, so if something catches your eye, shout out! Thanks for looking...

3, 4, 5 & 6 are wonderful! The smaller size posted don't do them justice I'm sure.

Beautiful pictures. I've only been to Yosemite once and that was in summer. I have to make it back there during the other seasons.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Great images.

If only everyone was as restrained when doing HDR. Thats exactly how they should always look - natural.

I'd recommend it for sure! Yosemite has a different character in each season. My favorite being the dark and mysterious winter version, followed by fall, spring, and finally the "Disneyland" summer version (what a madhouse it can be there :p).

Thanks - I almost hesitate to call it HDR because of what that implies to most people. Basically I use exposure blending (and the Lightroom graduated filter tool) instead of a GND filter.

Describes the valley floor well. :) It's not too bad when you get away from the popular trails, but the valley floor was a madhouse.

I use layer masks to do all of my "GND's" too. Number #4 and #5 are still a bit dark in the shadows, but other than that I like the series. Did you get a chance to drive up to Tioga?
