New Morning Light Image – Spring Oak, Coarsegold, California 2011

This morning, I photographed a wonderful spreading oak tree with brilliant morning sunlight.  Since the contrast was strong and I was aiming into the sun, I made seven exposures with .5 stops between frames.  After importing the files in Lightroom, I applied the Lens Correction for my Canon 16-35mm zoom, then exported to Nik HDR Efex Pro.  I just started using this software so am slowing learning the many processing options it offers and exploring its potential for me. So far, so good!

Enjoy!  Bill

    Bill, what a lovely piece of work. The tree in that image seems to be saying something and that warmth and splender makes one appreciate the beauty and love ‘Nature’ brings to our lives. Fantastic job!

  2. Hey Bill,

    I like the new image. The perceptive is nice the tree really seem to grow right over you and a of course the abstract patter of the branches and texture of the bark really adds to the overall success of the image. Great!

  3. Ahhh…another excellent tapestry, or as you put it, “patterns in nature”, image. Lovely.

  4. I love this, Bill; such a stunning, lovely homage to trees.
