About the Image(s)

Dry Season was created a couple of years ago in May at the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area located in South Florida around mile 108 off Route 27 in Palmdale. We went on a Camera Club outing. I used my Nikon D800 with the Nikkor zoom 14-24 mm f/2.8 at 14 mm on a tripod. I planed a 7 frames HDR bracketing sequence with a fixed F/13, ISO 100 and these shutter speeds: 1/60, 1/500, 1/250, 1/125. 1/30, 1/15 and 1/8. All the images were processed using Aurora HDR software with the resulting image. No cropping was done. One of the seven frames out of camera (1/30 sec) is included as original1, and I am also attaching another image from a different vantage point for illustration purposes as original 2 ( also a 7 shots HDR bracketing). During the rainy season all the cypress trees roots are under water.

Isaac, Wow your HDR technique really made a winner out of a pretty bla flat scene. The image is filled with leading lines making it even better. I really like this one. Bruce   Posted: 02/02/2021 00:44:34

Isaac, I like this image as well. Aurora did a great job on the sky bringing back the clouds. It does look a bit crunchy like maybe to much sharpening or saturation? It is a good example of what you can do with HDR technology to bring out color and depth to an otherwise ordinary image.   Posted: 02/03/2021 15:46:38

Issac, I love what you have done to create such a vibrant image. It's amazing how much can be done in PP to bring out the details, especially in areas like your sky and the trees. Nicely done!   Posted: 02/05/2021 17:16:48

I'm afraid I have a different view of this Isaac! I love the trees and all non sky/water areas, but I find the water detail and clouds so distracting, they take away the enjoyment of the location.

If the clouds (both original and reflection) were not so dark, leaving detail in different shades of white and light grey, I feel this would return the rightful focus of the image to the trees etc.

I love your Original 2 image and by quite a margin, prefer this to the main image. It tells the story of the area perfectly to me.

Sorry if I'm alone here!   Posted: 02/22/2021 12:37:00
