Default On the street where I live-the otherside

Our main street in the neighborhood runs from South to North. The first posting I did showed the view at the end of our street. This is the view from the beginning of the street:

HDR? If so, what software did you use? Beyond what's on my droid phone, I've no experience with it, but would like to try with my dSLRs.

I pretty much use Photomatix Light. Photoshop CS5 also has HDR capability but I generally have more control and prefer the output of Photomatix Light.
By the way, I prefer to exposure bracket 5 frames @ .03 exp. comp. Less than that and I find the results are lacking.

Wow, great view, Zig!

I saw the other end of your street, so it's good to see this side also.

The colours are certainly very vivid (and in reality I imagine so too) - but I wonder if it is just a bit too saturated..?

Is that fresh or salt water in the foreground?

I love the sky. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

The tidal creek you see in the foreground is a saltwater estuary running out to Cape Cod Bay. At the point I'm standing, it is very close to the beginning of the creek.

As for the colors, yes, I would agree that, on screen, it appears "overcooked". When printed on a textured linen photographic stock, it tones down quite dramatically and is much 'easier on the eyes'.


regards,
Zig

You've done a good job keeping the sky clean, the rest is a bit overcooked but I like the rich colors of the fall. Nice shot Zig.
