Behind the Photo of the Long Exposure Photography Picture at New Hampshire at Table Rock

On my last trip to the New Hampshire White Mountains I explored Franconia Notch State Park. Flume Brook was nicely filled with water due to a few rain events the days before my arrival. Peak autumn colors during New England fall foliage were imminent made for a spectacular photo tour to the Whites. This image here shows Table Rock, a small section of Conway granite that has been exposed and outcropped for hundreds of years. This scenic cascading water section is about 500 feet long and 75 feet wide and has plenty of photo opportunities. 

Positioned in the mid section of Table Rock I found an outcrop that beautifully displayed the cascading waters of Flume Brook. I incorporated the glorious fall foliage in the back to provide the essence of this magical place. A Polarizing Filter extended exposure times while also eliminating unwanted glare on leaves and wet surfaces. Aperture in this nature photography image was set to f/22 providing a 1 second shutter speed at ISO100. I under exposed slightly to further boosting the autumn colors. During post processing I cleaned up the image from dust spots and unwanted imperfections, minimally adjusted lighting, contrast and color saturation before sharpening the final long exposure photography picture of Scenic New Hampshire at Table Rock.
 

Good light and happy photo making!
