Rock Scramble



Taken in the Shawangunk mountains on the Labrynth trail at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York. The sky opened up over the rock climber sitting watching his friend scale the rock face behind me. I shot this as a RAW file and processed it twice, once for sky and once for foreground. Overlayed in Photoshop, I used a smooth gradient on a Layer Mask to blend the two exposures. Canon G9, 1/160 @ f/6.3, ISO 80, Exposure Compensation -1.67

Glad to see some work done with the G9. As a bridge camera that shoots RAW, it has interested me for it's mini-package capabilities. Something I might take abroad instead of my dslr and lenses, so I wouldn't whine as much if it got stolen. Any caviats about this camera you'd like to share?

Thanks for all your feedback!!


As for the G9, this was the first day of shooting it and I absolutely love it. I used Adobe's Camera RAW to process them before they officially released support for this model (update link below). Canon's import software is supposedly ideal, but I haven't had a chance to play with it. The camera is compact, fast, has an amazing screen, fast review and perfect for a manual pro-sumer alternative to lugging the Hunk-O-SLR everywhere. Highly recommended! Cheers.

Thanks, EJ! Now, suppose you could share a little how-to on getting a smooth gradient on a layer mask? I tried your technique of producing two differently exposed images from one RAW file (in CS2), but I don't know the aforementioned technique, so I wasn't extremely happy with my results. Hmm, just a minute, I'll post it and add a link right to it so you can see the sad end result.
