I have finally updated my HDR Tutorial!  Sorry it has taken so long…from now on if any of my processing styles change drastically (new software or Photomatix update)…I will update it asap!  This one was long overdue.  This is my work flow…you can also see some plug ins I use from NIK Software.  You can access  the tutorial here…HDR Tutorial and a link is always located on the right side of my blog.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.  Have fun!

Austin, TX – Westcave Preserve (HDR)

From my photowalk with the local Austin Photogroup…here is a waterfall shot from Westcave Preserve.  Quite a magical place (tours only).    It is about a 10 minute walk to get to the cave…all worth it!   You feel displaced when you are there…sure does not feel like Texas!  If you are in Austin, this is a must visit!  Beautiful indeed!

Info from the web:  The trail follows a clear running creek upstream to the head of the canyon where a sparkling waterfall tumbles 40 feet of fern-covered travertine columns into a vivid emerald pool.  Here, visitors step into a grotto behind the artesian spring-fed waterfall and examine cave formations and lush plant life seen in few other places in Texas.
