I love how the light seems to be peeking out from around the mountain. It adds a great depth to the photo.

Behind The Lens

Location
Taken below Vernal Falls, Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley.
Time
Taken in the morning April 27, 2014.
Lighting
I used an ND filter here not only for the effect but to turn down the bright background.
Equipment
The equipment was a Nikon D610 with a Nikon 16-35mm, tripod an a assortment of ND filters.
Inspiration
I want to get a shot with Vernal Falls in the background so I had to climb down to the river and get set up out on a rock where I had the river in front and the falls in back,
Editing
I processed this photo in LightRoom and also used a plugin by On1 Software.
In my camera bag
I usually carry 16-35 and 80-400 Nikon lenses. I also carry an assortment of ND filters and tripod.
Feedback
My advice is for long exposure shots with moving water a variable ND filter works best because it is much easier to just adjust the filter then to take one off and put another on.
