    Hey everyone! I went to New Hampshire on Saturday.... over 500 miles of driving, 14 hours total time, 500+ photos, and all along I encountered rain, snow, sleet, clouds, and even some blue skies.

    My first stop was right before Franconia Notch begins, at the Flume Gorge. I have shots of the Gorge, but this bridge afterwards was just perfect--really sums up the classic "Fall in New England" concept.

    There weren't blue skies often, but when there were I took advantage of them!

    After Flume Gorge, I went to Falling Waters, but the hike was more arduous than I expected (and I was alone), so I decided to forego that option and head over to Cannon Mountain. At the top of the mountain... I was met with quite a surprise... 18 degrees and 30mph winds!

    On the tram ride down I elbowed my way to the front window, and as we broke through the bottom of the clouds... well.. it was just gorgeous.

    And lastly, this photo really sums up the whole feeling of being in the Notch--beauty all around, lovely light, and plenty of color.

    I welcome critique on all of these, but I realize I posted a few, so any critique is better than none!

    Cheers,
    Jake

    I was up at the top of Cannon Mt. last fall and it is truly gorgeous. I loved how it smelled like Christmas up there! We had much warmer weather than you did, it was freezing this weekend! Love that last shot, you definitely nailed exactly how gorgeous it is in that area at this time of year. Not crazy about the black and white of the mountain, it really is all about the color at this time of year.

    nice man, right in my area. I had to present at a photo weekend event in Mass on Saturday, otherwise I probably would've run into you! Did you at least make it up to Cloudland Falls on Falling Waters?

    My dad grew up in Whitefield. I love the area. It's amazing how different NH is from Vermont. Both beautiful but I prefer NH. You know right away why they call NH the granite state.

    Son of a biscuit! I bet you I turned around just before it... I likely hiked up over a mile in before I decided to turn around. I did hit a smaller set of falls on the way up, I'll post that when I get home.

    It's ok, just means I have to go back!

    Yeah it's a beautiful area. Really glad I was able to make it up this autumn.

    One of the best views in the entire state is in Whitefield/Jefferson at Cherry Pond. Beautiful area

    I see what Lew is trying to say.
    There are no blacks in this photo. Setting the black point is another way to achieve this.
    I would set black point and then adjust shadows. Tends to have less effect on saturation than curves alone.
    It's a subjective thing, but tends to give the photo more pop.
    It's the kind of thing I find helps particularly when printing.

    The split screen does not show it terribly well due to the nature of the scene.

    The right side is the edited side as I see it on my monitor.
