Hi everyone. Todays post is from Yosemite National Park. This is a shot taken at Olmsted Point of glacial scaring and erratics deposited by receding glaciers. Olmsted Point is located on the Tioga Road and affords magnificent views west towards the backside of Half Dome and Yosemite Valley. This image was shot in the early afternoon when the light was a little more contrasty. But it is at times like this you can consider coverting the image to a black and white. The contrasty nature of the light affords some nice separations of tones once the image is converted. Use of the sliders in Photoshops Black and White Conversion layer allows you to darken skys and bring out other subtle tones such as reds and yellows to accentuate the texture or color separation.
Thanks for stopping by today.
