Jordan Roberts Photography
Wahclella Falls, Oregon
I've been on a serious dry-spell lately with photos as the weather along the Gorge hasn't been all that great. I needed to shoot anything, so I decided to scout around. I wasn't expecting to find the last ice chip like this. Winter photos from these waterfalls are rare (with the exception of Addam a.k.a. NWUnseen). Greglief has also posted some from winter, but in all reality they are just super difficult to shoot. I was surprised I could even get the color out of the shot on a cloudy day. The falls themselves were quite saturated to the human eye, my camera had a tough time capturing it though. So here it is. Enjoy!
This is a blend of 7 images. I constructed the background and the foreground separately and then blended the two images.

Blending multiple images together seems like a very powerful technique to bring out the most of the shots, and I´m quite interested in it; does it happen to have a specific name?
I then build the image based on parts that make most sense and are easiest to blend. So I blended the waterfall with the background wall, the waterfall spray with the mid-ground water, and the ice chip with the mid-ground water. So in the end, I was still left with 2 parts of the image.......... the foreground and the background, and then I just blended them together, like a basic image.
This image is actually a really good example of my usual method. When I go out and take photos I really only expose for certain subjects of the photo, rather than the entire photo as a whole; this gives you more control later on, and takes the pressure off having to try and get "that perfect exposure" when time is running out. This was also how I was able to get the waterfall spray really pronounced and in high detail.
