Fall at the lake.

Uploaded: October 25, 2008


Chambers Lake at Hibernia Park, Pa. This HDR was my last shot of the day. The sun had went down far enough to come off the water and was only hitting the top half of the trees. 3 Exposures with a Polarizer.

An fine example of all that a "fall" foliage shot should be, excellent work...

I still haven't figured out how to do the HDR thing yet, or for that matter how to exactly use a CPL either. Results like these make me eager to get it figured out soon though...

Thanks for sharing this winner of an image! #1027205

Hey Edward! Thanks very much for commenting. The HDR thing is still new to me, I'm no pro at it. It does seem to make a difference though. The Polarizer makes the most difference as long as your 90 degrees from the suns light. Thanks again! #6693245
