Default Winding Hills County Park

I first took pictures at twilight early in the spring at Goose Pond and was surprised at how responsive the images were to PSE's "Remove Color Cast" tool. Whereas the original images from my Sony A350 were deep-blue-hued, I was able to adjust them to more natural-looking colors using PSE. Since then, I didn't hesitate taking pictures in the dark especially after dinner when all the chores are done after sunset to experiment.

Last night, I took pictures at Winding Hills about 40-50 minutes after sunset. Below are two sets of my experiment.

Set #1.
#1) Middle exposure.


#2) DPHDR rendering with no color cast correction.


#3) Color cast correction #1.


#4) Color cast correction #2


Set #2.
#5) Middle exposure.


#6) DPHDR rendering with no color cast correction.


#7) Color cast correction #1.


#8) Color cast correction #2.


I guess what I'm trying to say is, the so-called "golden hour" may be the best time to shoot, but don't hesitate to go outdoors to take pictures even after the sun has set. I hope these help illustrate the point somewhat.

Also, knowing which color cast correction version you think looks better would help me, too.

Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

9 and 10 are definite winners for me. The others are a bit to dark for me.

Love the composition of 9
