As I walked around the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park, I could not help but notice how monochromatic the landscape was. When I processed the photograph of this dead pine tree I could only find hints of color. So, I decided that a high-key processing technique was in order. The snow and the bright skies were so void of detail that I thought it better to highlight the tree and the bare spots.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV using my Canon EF 16-35 mm f/4 Lens set on 35mm. The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/200th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a crop of a panorama image processed in Lightroom then finalized in Photoshop using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
