Palm Springs, California (HDR)

Palm Springs CA HDR

NIKON D300, Nikon 18-200 VR, HDR in Photomatix

Summer is coming to an end as school is starting all over the US soon.  So why not post a nice relaxing picture form Palm Springs (Indian Wells), CA!   This is one of a series I shot this morning back in March…including my favorite IR shot to date!  Now with this shot, I felt that a realistic HDR might be better.   I turned down the strength to make it more realistic while still having a HDR feel to it.   I only use a realistic HDR process around 5% of the time, but when its used, its very nice.  Almost looks like a standard photo….with a little touch to it!    But with HDR’s the fun part is your can make it look however you wish!  Realistic or artistic!   Is it really fall soon?  Cold weather is too realistic for me!!
