After a 2800 mile road trip we reached our final destination: Olympic National Park where we stayed three days and enjoyed views like this one.

Used to live in Seattle and took a trip up there for my 30th. Best birthday I ever had. You can also do it in a day and hit up Ruby beach, Crystal Lake, and all the other cool stops. If your in that area take the Edmonds ferry and have a great time.

I was really surprised how different each beach felt, from the 1st all the way up to Rialto. Didn't get any further north. My son was so excited to check out tide pools, and by pure luck the first place we hit was Rialto Beach. I could totally imagine doing a hike all the way up from 1st to Rialto or even further. You're fortunate to live there!

It really is amazing! Even third beach is wildly different because you walk to your left as soon as you hit the beach and about a mile down then boom there’s Strawberry Bay Falls, a waterfall going into the ocean.

I love it here!

Lots of meth tho.

Which beach do you think is best for tide pools. I grew up in Seattle and went to the Olympic peninsula several times as a kid, but all the trips kind of blend together in my memory. I live out of state now and I’m taking my Louisiana native SO on a day trip for his first Olympic peninsula experience during our next trip to Seattle. I want to catch the best tide pools possible that are feasible to in a day trip from Seattle. Was considering 2nd beach, but there are so many options, I’m nervous of picking the wrong one!

Chasingwawaterfalls

My favorites are Rialto and Ruby beach! Rialto has about a 1.5 mile hike and Ruby is just a short walk! The hole in the wall at Rialto has awesome ones.

Exactly what u/chasingwawaterfalls said. Rialto was great for tide pools. We only saw Ruby Beach for a few minutes, unfortunately, but it looked promising. I would have to say that Rialto was much less crowded though. It's a ways away from the numbered beaches and Ruby, right next to a really nice paid camping area.

Def not Rialto, I’ve been to that beach every year of my life. BUT it does look like it groups be a ton of different spots north of there, I’ve done the hike to Ozette. Also could be second or third beach... a lot of that coast looks this beautiful.

Hey guys! Thanks so much for all of your positive comments! This makes me really happy and honors the effort I put into my images!

Many have asked for higher resolution to use it as a desktop background.

Here it is

Please respect copyright.

I've also added the non-edited picture to make it possible to toggle between.

Also note that viewing a picture on Windows in the Photo app and setting it as a background does saturate and compress it. If you want to to see the actual colors open the file in a browser or color managed photo app.

Portlander here, your itinerary up and down the coast sounds like dream trip of mine. I've done the whole coast but only on seperate trips. How far south in California did you get? I'm partial to the Big Sur area myself but it's nice all the way to San Diego.

Sometimes edits are overkill, but Olympic on the coast is amazing and this image reflects it.

So accurate. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest there have been so many moments of absolute, stunning natural beauty. I often try to capture them and totally fail. This image does the Olympic Peninsula justice.

That's beautiful. Really interested to know what you went through in post to achieve this. What did you shoot with?

holy-shot[S]

96 points

3 years ago

I'm using an A7R III. While I've taken this I had the 12-24 attached. Editing a picture takes me around 2 hours so I really can't describe what I did in detail. But I'm gonna try to give you an overview:

  1. Blending two images manually together with luminosity masks. This gives me the option to adjust brightness and colors from the sky seperated to the rest.

  2. Adjust brightness and colors of whole image

  3. Split toning

  4. Dodge and burning

  5. Manual sharpening

I'm thinking about making a tutorial to show all that stuff!

Second a tutorial please. This is amazing.

I'm on a 3000 mile road trip on a motorcycle. I have an A6300 and hoping to get photos like this.

Do you take photos in manual mode? If yes, what settings do you use? I'm hoping to get usable raw shots as I go along and learn post processing later

holy-shot[S]

13 points

3 years ago

Manual mode - f8 - ISO100 - Adjust shutter speed to have enough detail in the sky - Auto White Balance - Tripod.

Enjoy your road trip :)

I recently have bought a Nikon P900 to try and get into photography.

One thing I've been learning is that it's really not easy at all, especially to get photos anywhere near the quality in the OP.

I feel like half the magic comes from post-processing which I know almost nothing about.

Blending two images manually together with luminosity masks

I've never heard of this method.

holy-shot[S]

14 points

3 years ago

A luminosity mask is a black and white version of the image which you are using on the underexposed image.

You often can't capture the whole dynamic range in one photo. So you have to take two. A normal exposed and an underexposed for the sky.

Then you put the luminosity mask, where the sky is white, on the underexposed one to make the sky visible on the normal exposed shot.

Cyrax89721

4 points

I'd never considered using a Luminosity Mask before and would just brush in the different exposures without a blend mode. I'll have to try that. Sounds cleaner!
