Challenge: Silhouettes III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
Location: Yosemite National Park, California
Date: Aug 26, 2006
Aperture: 11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1.6
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Aug 29, 2006

Illegally pulled over blocking half the road in Yosemite on a little less travelled road, but had to get this picture. Wish there was room to frame this better but if I moved in any direction I'd probably be off a cliff, into a cliff or in the middle of a traffic. Patiently took out my tripod switched lenses to my 70-200mm with 1.4x extender.

Increased saturation until my blues and reds came out a bit more. Saved for web.

Way to go Frederick!! Your personal best at DPC. I agree that when in Yosemite, you sometimes just have to find a way to get the shot. It was a close race between your entry and mine. You have a capture that should be at the top. Congratulations!!

The colour makes this image stand out, as well as the way you chose to frame it. Amazing. Should take a ribbon.

This is one of my favourites. Just the tree alone would have been wonderful but you have the added bonus of the moon. It has a ghostly yet calm feel about it. The dead tree was a much better choice than a live one.
