Bride Reflection

Canon 40D * Canon EF-24-105mm f/4.0L lens * ISO 100 * 1/250 second * f/5.0

While on a photowalk with my wife to Temple Square in Salt Lake City Utah I was standing on a bridge waiting for people to move out of this shot when I noticed a bride looking at herself in the reflection pond.  I quickly captured this image before she moved out of the picture.  I really like the placement of her arms and her head tilted to one side.

Taken at Antelope Island looking East towards Francis Peak(Wasatch Range). This photo doesn’t do much justice to show the height of these peaks. The elevation of this photo is at 4200 feet, the elevation of Francis Peak is 9700 feet. I never get tired of the view.

I use Adobe Lightroom for processing all my RAW files. It’s more than just a photo organizer, It’s become an important part of many photographers workflow. Scott Kelby uses it for all of his RAW processing and about 70% of his workflow.

I recently found some neat presets at Inside Lightroom. For this photo, I used the Cross Process Dragan 4 preset.
