Taken on our first night in Whistler. We had just had a great meal, and decided to go for a walk around the village and surrounding area to check out some of the sights.
We decided to head through the Upper Village- making our way towards Lost Lake Park. En route, the path follows the beautiful Chateau Whistler Golf Club.
This shot was taken from a road which cuts between two of the fairways.
This shot is a combination of 2 images. The first image to properly expose the sky, the second image to properly expose everything else.

All the best!

Dan, I don't know what you did with the water, but it looks just FANTASTIC!!!

Nice work Dan! The effect on the water is stunning and the color is unique.
Very nice composition and good choice of exposure time.
Thanks for the note on the 2 images. Did you use a tripod?

I can see you’ve enjoyed every minutes of your visit, back in hometown. This is a great photo, since it shows a detailed area quite different from the vertiginous peaks we usually see. It feels more intimate and personal about your own exploration and as I can see, it seems to have nice landscape everywhere around B.C. great outdoor.
Excellent point of view and great colours for this stream. Very succesful results for the velvet water effect. I like the way clouds formation seems to mirror the water flow. Great work!
Have a great week-end!

Perfectly blended multiple exposure Dan - well done.
Excellent composition, drawing the viewer in with nice natural framing.
Very striking work

Great shot Dan! I really like the stream in this,and of course being able to see the sky clearly is great too. I haven't tried the HDR technique yet, but shots like this make me want to. Great work!

I never made a work like that fusing two photos. How I to make it? Can you tell me?
Beautiful colors and a lovely place.

Beautiful shot of this scenery. The colours are fantastic and the sky above is amazing. Great POV which creates a great perspective and lots of depth. Great way to capture the running water. Excellent composition and beautiful details!

Nice framing, POV and detail captured here. I also like the blur and the colour of the water. The contrast between bluish white water and the green foliage shows up with good impact. Nice work and excellent composition.

Well Dan I think you did well in taking two photos for this image. Its a challenge at times to deal with the range of lighting in the viewfinder and the limit on the sensor to capture the same. But I would say that you managed this very well. Excellent scenery in Whistler abounds all around. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Dan. I must say I'm really blown away by this one. Your handing of the exposure via two shots was a super way to approach it. Some people may not care for the fluid look in the falls but I always prefer it myself. I will have to remember how you achieved these results the next time I'm in a similar situation.

Excellent! The combination of the two picture resulted superb color. (I'm going to try it in the next weekend.)

Hi Dan, you have done a wonderful job of combining 2 photos with proper exposure. Nice scenary and soft water flow.

Great shot;well exposed longer and beaiful colours and scene.
Ladycroquette1 (112) 2006-08-09 8:06
OH! Water is no nice and sky too, that's a wonderful composition you did! Congrats!
anducina (8407) 2006-08-20 8:43
Wow ! Genial idea, the one with combined photos. This is the answer for my problem, the answer I was looking for: how to obtain beautiful skies, but not to under-expose the rest of the picture. Thank you, Dan.
And, I must say, the photo is excellent. I like this flowing effect (I hope that is the right name in English-in Romanian is "efectul de curgere"). I like the blue mountains seen between the trees. And of course, I like the sky.

In 15 seconds you managed to take sharp pictures of the leaves Dan. its amazing those leaves never got disturbed by wind. Water flow is awesome. Good one.
zeca (19762) 2006-08-22 23:16
Nice POV and beautiful colours! The sky looks great and the exposition on the waters shows it amazing!

Hey Dan, beautiful shot and great use of combining images. I've spent the last 30 minutes going through your gallery and it's fantastic. The composition in this shot is very well done with the stream cutting the flora in two. Also, I like the slow exposure here.

I've no idea what 'HDR' is all about - but with images like this, I reckon I'm about to find out! I've a swag of pics from my Whistler trip - but I'll be hard-pressed to come up with something as good as this!
Good onya, mate!
