37° 43' 12.90" N
119° 39' 55.80" W

Equipment: Hasselblad C501 with 50 mm lens and polarizing filter. Velvia transparency film, ISO 50.

Digital imaging/manipulation: Two images. Film scanned on Minolta Dimage Scan Multi PRO at 4800 dpi.

Notes: I really liked the foreground because of its color, but the sky was gray, flat and cluttered with emulsion artifact. Using Photoshop CS2, the sky was selected and the sky from the second image of a Jeffrey Pine on Sentinal Dome was pasted into the selected area. The two pictures were taken at roughly the same time and within a few miles of each other. For those offended by such manipulation…um…I just made that up. This is exactly how it looked.
