Solitude by lycanthropeful Solitude by lycanthropeful
I went hiking here today with some friends. It is an absolutely gorgeous trail nestled in the Hocking Hills right outside of Logan, Ohio, roughly 40 minutes north of Athens. As I am quickly discovering with much of southeastern Ohio, there are hidden natural wonders all over the damn place. We hiked inside and around Old Man's Cave and the gorge trails.

Not being much of a photographer, I still took my camera along if only to capture the memories. However, curiosity struck me, and I decided to learn about some ways to better prep photography (my camera is digital, but it's pretty detail-friendly, being 14+ MP). This time I adjusted the photo in Camera Raw and then duplicated the image, placing it on top as a Multiply layer. Then I selectively layer masked out some of the values to make the shadows really pop.

Other photos

Complete photo-noob, here... not that I plan on taking photography in the future, but if things are "right" or "wrong," I'd love to know. Thanks, and enjoy! :)

Clarity and sharpness are the best in this photo. This is my favorite of the three.

This is my favorite of the three. I really like the shadows and movement of the water. The log is an interesting point in the photo just above the water. I am no photography genius, but art should be something you like.

Thanks! The log is my favorite part (or at least one of my favorite elements of the piece). =D

"Not being much of a photographer"? You're kidding me, right? I can't get over just how professional in terms of how this photo was taken, be it raw or photoshopped.
