While eating breakfast this morning, I looked over the bunch of pictures that I shot at Coopers Rock on Sunday. One that I had previously overlooked seemed promising.
I had framed a picture of the view from behind the overlook. Shooting from a tripod I got off three shots at 1/200, 1/400, and 1/800 second at an f/3.2 aperture. These were processed by NIK's HDR Efex Pro 2, using the "deep" preset. Added a little bit more processing with ColorFX Pro 2.
Can't find much to complain about with this shot. This has perhaps the best foliage colors of the Coopers Rock shots that I had taken. The composition is nice, with the fir tree in the foreground providing a crisp framing effect. Lines from the overlook walkway form a small triangle at the bottom. A beautiful blue sky with puffy clouds is not too overdone by the HDR effect. You can hardly see the sightseers on the overlook.
That'll do, pig.
