Nov. 11, 2014: Late afternoon sunshine hits El Capitan in the background as the Yosemite Valley displays brilliant fall colors around the Merced River on a warm autumn day. This image was made through a high dynamic range process or HDR. Using a tripod, bracketed exposures were made that were both over-exposed and under-exposed. Those images were merged together in Photoshop and then color-corrected normally. This allowed the bright highlights of El Capitan as well as the shadow areas on the river to keep from becoming too dark or too light. Craig Kohlruss’ photo was honored with a second place award by the California Newspaper Publishers Association.
