Mission Dam in HDR

Uploaded: January 17, 2011


f16, ISO 100, Nikkor 18-70mm kit lens, Sing Ray Vari ND filter. I used the new NIK HDR software. I love it!! It has so many presets and limitless ways to fine tune your images!! I used only 2 images here and worked extra contrast to bring out the frosted look of the water with a slight vignetting effect. It seemed to complement the shadows of the trees that were casting their long shadows due to the late afternoon hour.

Are you trying to get a job with NIK? :o)
I like the sense of movement in the water you get from this image. #1344962
