Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes
Challenge has finished
Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist, best known for his black-and-white photographs, with great composition and care about the light and tones. With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photograph. Adams primarily used large-format cameras despite their size, weight, setup time, and film cost, because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images. Adams also founded the Group f/64 along with,photographers like Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston. Adams's photographs are a source of inspiration to many of us, and a pleasure to see. So, try to show (mimic) is style.

This is Half Dome with its reflection in the Merced river. I took this photo during a day trip with my family in October 2005. Yosemite National Park was outstanding so many photo opportunities and such a beautiful landscape.

|Notes:||Taken with a simple point and shoot camera. The picture has had some HDR applied and been reduced in size to meet the challenge guide lines. Mr Ansell would probably not approve since the picture has a painterly effect rather than an F64 realism.|
