I’m not done with this shot yet. I revisited my location and worked some more on this shot. In this photo, there are no strings attached, and no post-shutter editing was performed. This is what the camera saw. You’ll have to figure out how I got this shot on your own.
Ditto for this next shot: this is what the camera saw.
Oh no! Who knew there were sharks in Jenny Lake at the Great Tetons National Park? Lions and tigers and bears and sharks? Well, maybe not.. But as with the above two shots, this is what the camera saw — no Photoshopping going on here.
