On the first morning I was at Lake Mohawk (last Friday), I got up fairly early and walked down the road “a piece”, as they say, to the south end of the levee where I set up my tripod to get some shots of the lake at sunrise. I was hoping that there would be a good bit of fog on the lake, but I think I got out there just a little bit too late, so there was just a hint of mist left. I took several series of bracketed shots, intending to process them as HDR images, but as it turned out, the breeze was blowing pretty good that morning, so the foilage produced a lot of ghosting on the HDR’s.
So I went through the individual shots and pulled out some to process on their own, and I don’t think they turned out too bad:
These were all processed in PaintShop Pro X3 from the raw NEF files. The larger versions look better, and can be seen on my Flickr page in the Lake Mohawk set. Hope you’ll visit there and let me know how you like these shots as well as the ones I posted earlier.
Also, just want to remind you that I have a separate project in the works at 365Project.org. That’s where I’m posting one photograph every day, taken with my Blackberry Tour. It’s actually a fun little project, and I’d encourage everyone to join in and post those candid shots taken with your cell phone! Or, if you don’t want to post your own shots, feel free to follow me on my project!
