Andrew from Roseville, United States

I agree with Curly - great job getting the colors without overexposing! It's a really subtle HDR. Do you use the in-camera feature, or do you bracket exposures and combine them in post?

7 Nov 2013 9:30pm

@Andrew: I rarely do "in-camera" processing. But more times than not, I will do a pseudo-HDR with one exposure as long as it is shot in RAW. On my tags, I list the actual file number for the photo (DSC). If you see two or more file numbers, you know it was a bracketed shot.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A fabulous composition and those colors are marvelous! The silhouetted trunk and branches offer a dramatic touch. Bravo!
