Default Panorama view of path to the lake

Ok, someone asked if my previous shot was an HDR... that got my mind to thinking of doing an HDR... so I made 6 groups of photos, 3 to 4 photos in a group. I used HDR software for each group. I then stitched together all 6 groups into a panorama. How's this? I value any feedback. By the way, keep in mind that these are Birch trees. To me, this is such a beautiful view to see from my summer cabin steps. Thanks for looking! All the best. Ned

The HDR is beautifully done, not overlooked like so many are. I love the picture and sure wish I could look out my window at something like that!

Indeed very well done without being "overdone." And a great summer view of this lush forest!

Very Nice, that to me is how HDR should be used.

Agree with everyone, nicely "cooked" image, I can't get HDR right, not sure if that is due to my colourblindness though, hard for me to make out colour transition, but this is spot on!

Hi Harriet, Mole, Ennacac and Tachikoma. Just arrived home from Estonia. Wanted to write to say "Thank you so much" for your kind comments, which only help me to focus on improving my skills. I really enjoyed this shot, and I am glad you did, too. All the best! Thanks for looking. Ned

I agree nicely done, I also have trouble with HDR, thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Hans and thanks! I can tell you one thing, I wouldn't bother with HDR unless you use a tripod. Also, I used Martin Sykes' free and very cool software, which you can get from www.autohdr.co.uk

All the best.
