[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an HDR shot of the area Tricia and I walked around, and the beautiful day we had as the weather cleared from misty foggy rainy to partly cloudy and nice!
I love the colors of this, the blue is nice and achieved with the high F stop. For me, it slows the shutter speed down and the longer the shutter is open the more detail is picked up. It's a fine line to walk, but sometimes the success is worth the learning curves.
Have a great day!

Hello Linda,
Good depth you achieved in this harbor composition. The blue water, the fine graphism conveyed by the wooden pier, and your impeccable HDR workflow are the highlights. Wishing you an early but fun-filled Thanksgiving. Regards...

Nice HDR - subtle, which is the best way for these to be! Nice view - all verticals and horizontals look right too..
The 'Linda touch of vignette' is at hand - good shot.

Hi Linda,
Inviting POV on this place. I would like to stroll there by a such beautiful day!
Excellent HDR! This your signature now!


I like your execution of a HDR shot. The pier and the water are nice. Not so sure about the busy background. I'm thinking if it was worth to blur it out.
