Treman Gorge Trail from the Old Mill enters a narrow gallery looking here southeast along Enfield Creek, passing over a stone footbridge. I climbed down into the stream bed.
At the gallery entrance a flat limestone flagstone emerges a few inches from the flowing water. It is here I placed the tripod, different than the yesterday’s exposure in that the field only shows the stream, not the flagstone, the camera seems to float over water. ISO set to a fairly slow 250, in deference to the background bright in the risen sun. F-stop F22, the lens maximum, and the shutter speed set automatically, aperture mode, to 3.2 second from a focus point on a darker part of creek.
Opening the raw file in Photoshop, the underexposed left side was brightened using Shadows and Blacks. The slower exposure caused to background to blow out, Highlights and Whites ineffective. The solution was to carefully copy and paste a better exposure, a technique made possible by the tripod.

It is 8:30 am on a Memorial Day morning Robert H. Treman Park, Ithaca, Tompkins County, New York. From the Canon ES-1Ds Mark III mounted with a Canon 24 mm f/1.4L II USM lens, on a Manfrotto studio tripod and hydrostatic ball head. I chose to save results to a TIFF file as it is not possible to save settings to the raw format.
