American Falls, Niagara Falls at night

20121015 Niagara Falls-32-2-Edit

 

View of American Falls and Rainbow Bridge from the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.  I sat on this image for over a year, because I knew it required some serious work.  I manually blended 3 separate exposures with different white balancing and colour correction to come up with something usable.  The overhead flood lighting and dark night made for a bit of a challenge, but the end result appears the way I remember the scene.  As good as today’s pro digital cameras are, no sensor could deal with the dynamic range of this scene with a single exposure, and the complex movement and lighting made me choose to develop this manually rather then go the HDR route.

View of American side of Niagara Falls, from the Canadian side.   Shot at dusk using a single exposure, conditions were very cooperative on this evening.
