I found some excellent tutorials on HDR (High Definition Range) photography and I used them on some of my favorite photos.  I’m reposting – I hope you can see the difference and that it’s pleasing.

Florida Gazebo

with one comment

This gazebo is located at the Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora, FL.  Something about the weeping Spanish Moss, the huge trees and the loneliness makes this a bit of a bit dramatic.  Post process work to enhance the color.

steam engine stacks edited 2The temperatures here in Florida have finally moderated and it was a nice afternoon with a nice breeze.  I could actually walk around without getting drippy with sweat.  This shot was taken on Lake Dora, in Mount Dora, FL.
