Default Another from the Lake Placid region.

Actually, this shot was taken at the White Mountain Range - not far at all from lake Placid. The shot wasn't as clean as I would have liked it to be, because of the rainy weather conditions, that also translated into a low - and rather dense - cloud cover. Again, DPHdr came to the rescue for me. I thought that the vignetting added a nice little touch to this photo - but let me know what YOU think.

NICE! I like the vignette and the way it guides you through the 2 pines that frame it.

Hi Nathan

I agree with gjtoth, interesting effect with the heavy vignetting- and those 2 pine trees do add an 'inner frame'.

the vignette is a bit too "hard" possibly soften the edges a bit more and give it a bit more of a flow between dark corners and the photo. I can actually see the oval.

I love the shot though.

Very nice shot. Has a mysterious tone to it.

I get picky about my pictures and while I love the scene, I'm not crazy about the processing. I agree that the vignetting is a bit over-done, and on the left side it seems to accent the slight HDR halo around the tree. I might not have noticed it without the vignette. I find such things distracting. Now that's just my opinion and please take it that way.

Yes, I agree that the vignetting is a bit much, and will take steps to produce another copy with less of that effect. I also didn't take particular notice of the HDR halo effect until you mentioned it. A correction on this will also be attempted.

Thanks, mtngal.
