Teton Mountain Lake
My Teton Mountains gallery piece that I call Mountain Lake Reflections is being displayed in the Spori Gallery on Brigham Young University-Idaho’s campus. It was taken of the Teton Mountains on a cloudy day and I love the way it turned out. It was an HDR image which means that I took 3 separate shots of the Teton mountains and then compiled them together. You can see the 3 separate shots of the Tetons that I used below the finished product. The best features of each image were used to create the masterpiece that it now is. In addition to putting all three images together, I also put a little more contrast in the clouds to make them stand out more. Also, notice the composition of the photograph. The stump in the water follows the rule of thirds and is nicely off-set. The Teton mountain is along the upper third line of the picture. The leading lines from the trees points your view directly to the blue mountain. If you want to know more about Grand Teton National Park this links to an article about the Tetons.
