Storm Over the Falls

This is another one of my favorite pictures from my February trip to Yosemite.  What is interesting about this one is when I first went through my pictures I totally dismissed this picture.  It was, of course, in color and looked totally flat.  It wasn’t until several months later when I was going back through some of my pictures that I wondered what this one would look like as black and white (you can see the straight convert here).  After playing around with the contrast and clarity a bit I arrived at the below picture:

Settings:

Camera: Canon EOS REBEL T2i
Lens: EF20mm f/2.8 USM
1/320 secs
f/2.8
ISO 100

I am not real happy with the edit yet.  To me it feels a over done but when I try and tone it down I feel like the image doesn’t pop.  Regardless, it has become one of my favorite images from my trip.
