Thanks Carolyn & Melissa ;-) #7790571

Marty Straub July 28, 2009

Outstanding, Ed. I like your work. This is a beautiful mid-line comp with extraordinary color and magnificent reflections. This is one of PA's 117 state parks I haven't visited yet. (Do we still have 117?) This exposure is incredibly inviting. #7791012

Ed Heaton July 28, 2009

Hi Marty and Thank You! I have to be honest I'm not sure how many parks PA has now... Normally over the summer it's a goal of mine to visit a different state park each time I head out for a camping trip. I still have plenty to visit ;-) #7791169

Wow, this captures the mood perfectly! Beautiful colours and great lighting. Did you use any filters to get such a perfect exposure? #7794109

Ed Heaton July 29, 2009

Hi Nadja and Thank you! This is a 5 shot HDR (high dynamic range) image. I took 5 exposures at 1 stop increments. My exposures went from 2 stops under to 2 stops over exposed. I then processed them with Photomatix to combine them into one image with a wide dynamic range. To finish things off I processed it in Photoshop to add contrast and saturation. #7794146
