Default Water: Inspiration Point

A short drive down Pacific Coast Highway is Corona Del Mar. Overlooking the ocean is Inspiration Point. I was there this morning and captured these two scenes.

A winding path takes one down to the sandy beach in the other direction.

Great photos and scenes, Walter. Is that first one processed as HDR?

Yes, it is an HDR.

Walter, these are both beautiful vistas but something about them bothers me. I'm not sure if it is saturation, color balance or something else. The water looks normal but everything else seems a bit hazy and seems to have a brownish tint. Both photos seem to share this problem. Since only the first is HDR processed, I can rule that out as the cause.

Maybe it is just my old eyes and cataracts!

Calr, I attribute the brownish tone to the fact hat earth tones are tremendously popular in southern California. Actually I thought at first the white balance was off but the white clouds doesn't seem to support that theory.
Those homes in the first shot are pretty precariously perched. Lovely scenic shots.
