Took a quick trip over to Houghton’s Pond this afternoon hoping to get some good sunset shots that I could enter into a photo contest. I don’t know that I got any contest winners but did get some nice shots. This image is actually 3 shots one at metered value and +1 -1, combined in Photomatix Essentials HDR software. As far as HDR goes, this is my very first ever foray into it, and maybe I should have waited for a better example to post. But I did like the end result of this 3 shot combo, even though I probably could have gotten the same (maybe even better) image by post processing in Lightroom and or Elements. I definitely need some more practice before I can put HDR to proper use.
