|The waterfall at the Alluvial Fan in Rocky Mountain National Park. Tent on river bank with lantern flashlight inside. 52 minutes after sunset, but before complete darkness. (The full moon did not help me on this night due to heavy overcast over the front range, although clear sky to the west.) Ambient light source primarily from "alpenglow" in the last light of dusk. Shutter curtains opened on Bulb... locked open with remote shutter release cable. Waterfall and "path" of water energy "painted' with halogen beam flashlight. 144 seconds of exposure.
RAW image capture. In Aperture, global adjustment to exposure +0.5, shadows +43.2, brightness +0.14, saturation +0.23, color temp normalized to 5147 K. Then, opened as tiff in PhotoShop Elements. Additional boost to shadows, increased contrast and increased saturation. Noise Ninja to remove electronic noise. A few hot pixels were cloned out. Globally, red color reduced. Cropped and resized.
