The McDougall Mill, Renfrew

Second Chute, Renfrew

Loggers found five sets of waterfalls and rapids on the Bonnechere River and built Log Chutes around them. This is the Second Chute of the group located in downtime Renfrew. The flow is much reduced from former days but there is an interesting mill, the McDougall Mill, and swinging bridge nearby Bonnechere Falls was the first chute,  the Third Chute is in Douglas, the Fourth Chute is near to Douglas and the Fifth Chute used to run through the gorge at Eganville.

Rating:


Warning: It can be dangerous to view and photograph waterfalls. The footing can be wet and slippery, and an accidental fall can result in serious injury or death. Note also that many sections of waterfalls are on private property. Please respect these rights.

Barn in a Cornfield

Filed under: Landscape,Processing Tips — Tags: , — Harold Stiver @ 6:00 am

Barn in a cornfield

I have been working on my processing workflow, using what might be termed “best practices”. This means things like

  • Starting with Raw files
  • Converting to 16 bit files
  • Doing each adjustment in an adjustment layer
  • Saving a master which includes all layers and adjustments.

On the last point, it is astonishing how large this master file can get. The master of the above image is about 200mg. I feel very happy with the process though. I feel it will be very useful to develop a consistent processing workflow. I’ll let you know the results.
