Jones Gap State Park

I have long been a fan of the Hudson River School in painting.  I had two images I had taken about eight years ago in upstate South Carolina at Jones Gap Park which I didn’t like in their color version — the water was too brown looking for my tastes — although I otherwise liked the images.  However, as I have been learning how to extend the tonal range in black and white photos, I discovered that these two made rather painterly scenes in the Hudson River style.  I have consequently posted them in my gallery.  Take a look at the latest I have been doing using this black and white technique — a process I borrowed from the high dynamic range methods of photomatrix, and similar tools.  The images start here.
