Picture Story

In May a few years ago, some good friends from the U.K. flew over to Las Vegas, and I met with them there. We traveled through Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, visiting the incredible natural areas there, such as Zion, Bryce, Arches, Monument Valley and the Grand Canyon. I took this image at Double Arch in Arches National Park. On this day, there were people moving everywhere. One way of handling this problem is to use a "big stopper" ND filter, slowing down the exposure so much that the moving people disappear. However, I chose to use the following method to eliminate them from my image: I took about a dozen identical images from the same location, and then layered them and masked them selectively in Photoshop to reveal the uncluttered image, free of people - except I left the one person in the center of the image to provide a sense of scale.
