"Autumn Stairs" - Did not place

This photo was taken at Bridal Veil Falls in Bedford Metroparks (Bedford, Ohio) during Autumn.  It's an incredible place any time of year, but especially magical during the fall!  If you have the nerve to walk down the first waterfall, there are a few additional smaller waterfalls downstream. The main waterfall is fairly slippery, so you may want to consider finding an alternate route.  All I can say is that it's worth while if you do find a safe way down!

 


 

"Before The Light" - 2nd Place

 I was invited to photograph a bass fishing tournament a few years ago, and being the type of person who likes explore different photographic adventures, I was all in!  I woke at the crack of dawn to get there before the break of day, as you'll find the most dramatic light just before sunrise or sunset. There's something about the angle of the light during those times of day, that makes everything look ethereal... Sprinkle in a few clouds, and you've got the ingredients for a decent photo.  Inversely, noon is the absolute worst time of day to take photos, due to the harsh light.

 

 This shot was captured just before the sunrise, using a few graduated filters attached to the lens.  These filters allowed me to even out the exposure between the sky and foreground, which made a tremendous difference in the final image.
