I don’t care how many images of Multnomah Falls I’ve taken and shared, I’ll never get tired of working on them. There is something so especially regal about this landmark. It’s no surprise that it is the go to destination when visiting the Columbia River Gorge. You’ll reap most of the rewards of having the place to yourself by visiting in the early morning hours, during weekdays, and during more extreme weather.

In terms of processing

This look was achieved by combining Magic Forest and Magic Ocean_ while masking a bit of a Blue filter onto the water, done in Perfect Effects 4 by onOne Software.

I think the real magic happens because of FocalPoint 2. By applying the shallow depth of field simulation to the area of the falls just beyond the bridge, I feel that there is a really cool 3D effect.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3
