Default After today's storm

Hello all,

It's been a while since I've posted in the HDR forum, so i figured i would share a few shots from tonight. A storm rolled through the area today and i was figuring that the setting sun may stay behind the clouds, but as luck would have it, it didn't. Here are the two best shots i got.

Nice captures, especially #1. Love the sunbeams and the foilage.

+1. A difficult shot well done.

I actually prefer the second - however there is maybe too much of the turbulent water at the bottom, somewhat distracting. I like the fog/vapour rising up through the sunlight.

Thanks all for the comments

The second picture was the hardest to capture, the exposure was 1/15th of a second for the middle ground exposure with a +/-2 for the bracket, it was handheld with Image stabilization turned on, but even then i was kneeling holding the camera as close to the water as i could without it getting splashed.

I'm just surprised how well the brackets lined up with no ghosting or blurriness to the final composite.

They are both wonderful! You did a great job! The HDR isn't overdone; they just look like really wonderfully-exposed shots.

I miss Pennsylvania...
