Hi Charles,

Thanks, I really like those 2 as well. Those are shots of Paine's Creek, located in Brewster, MA. Paine's Creek is quintessentially Cape Cod. It's probably one of the most photographed and painted scenes in all of the Cape. During the Summer there are plenty of photogs and artists there trying there hand at capturing the image.

Since it faces West, Sunset's there can be quite outstanding and I need to remember to do that.

Hi Jacob,

And, thanks a lot for the kind comments. I guess the trick, if there is one, is that I tend to shoot all my landscape shots using a tripod. I set up my E-30
for AE bracketing 5frames at 1/3exp comp. I set the shutter release for sequential shooting Hi.
Setting up the camera in this fashion, allows me the flexibility of choosing wether or not to use HDR on the images I've captured. In these particular images , I used Photomatix Light to dramatize the clouds and sky as well as the colors of the boulders.

My only wish was that it was 80 degrees out there yesterday.

Some have the tendancy to overdo there HD shots. I think you have it just right. Have to try it myself someday soon.
