OK, most trees branch, I know. But I had a difficult time coming up with a title for the photo, and this one seemed appropriate somehow.
This is a tree on the northern side of The National Park, towards the Carifesta Avenue side. It possibly fell and continued to grow, growing across the waterway and then branching upwards and out. It creates a nice shady area, on this overcast day, there was very little light under the tree’s canopy, and I thought that an HDR would be a nice idea, I didn’t have my tripod with me, so I had to hand-hold the camera for the exposures. The re-alignment didn’t come out spot-on, but it has a softness to the image that I liked.
I’ve had this one since last September to process and finally got around to it, I did no pre-processing in Lightroom, simply carried it into HDR Efex Pro and did the merging there, then a slight crop and rotate in Lightroom, then some saturation shifts and clarity adjustments to finish it off.
It is not a spectacular HDR, but it was geared towards revealing more detail in a very gloomy area 🙂
