About the Image(s)

South of Spokane WA is a beautiful and unique area of farmland in gently rolling hills known as the Palouse. We were at the top of the Steptoe Butte at the golden hour to take photographs of the rolling hills. Because of the elevation, I was taking photos from a distance, and even though I was zoomed way in with my 18-200 telephoto lens, I still did significant Lightroom cropping to get the scene I wanted.

I took 3 bracketed photos at -3/10 EV, -1 3/10 EV, and 7/10 EV, and combined them in NIK HDR, then cropped, brightened, and sharpened the HDR image.

I am using the middle bracketed image as the original, and after it's posted, I'll try to add the other 2 of the set in a comment, since the 3 photos were requested last time I used HDR.

Joan, you did a terrific job capturing this country scene. I like the range of colors and the detail. The contours of the plowed fields and the gentle slope of the land add interest. Good choice on the crop.   Posted: 12/12/2019 16:00:16

Joan, this image has it all: Great leading lines, interesting landscape features and great coloring. I agree with Bunny, your choice of cropping really makes this image work. It reminds me of a Vincent van Gogh painting. Thanks for sharing!   Posted: 12/14/2019 09:15:25
