This image was made with my Canon 24mm tilt-shift lens. I used the shift motion to look up while keeping the camera straight up and down to avoid keystoning, and I used the tilt motion to align the plane of focus from the moss-covered rock in the foreground to the top of the falls. I used a polarizer to reduce the reflections off of the wet foliage. It was dark enough that I had a 15-second exposure at f11 without using a neutral density filter.
