Tricia and I took a drive along a remote toad near Falmouth and found this little cove. She stopped along this two lane road to let me take this shot. It's got to be one of my favorites of the trip. I processed this the regular way and then the HDR way. I like the HDR version better, so I am posting it.

I combined a single image from RAW into three TIFF files, each a little darker from center. Merged in my Corel Pro X2. I added a vignetting and a bloom in my Photoscape program.

I am a little better today. The doc gave me a steriod shot and that seemed to help some. No exercise until Thursday maybe. Hope you all have a great day!

Hi Linda, Great landscaping shot, nice sharpen, colors and details. The house is your?

HI Linda......your HDR shots are the most natural of any I have seen. I am sure it is because of your technique. Nice job.


Wonderful view, peacefull and with soft tones. I often don't like HDR, because too "clean" for my opinion. But this one is really natural with a nice light.
Take care !
Best regards

Hi Linda,

A nice, peaceful looking cove. I'd love to own that house. Well composed and your pp/HDR treatment is superb. TFS

Warm regards,

Hi, Linda. Very pretty scene and I would love to spend some quiet time in that house.The photo is sharp, good colors, balanced composition and excellent metering. Your informative note incressed my knowledge.
Note. I hope you feel better. I have a lot of patients who thank me for giving steroid shots in the back and neck.

Hello Linda :)

Beautiful place and piekna work
Excellent details and colours...splendid HDR
Fantastic effect and perfect realization.
Congratulations! It pleases me very.

Hello Linda,
You have in fact captured a great image with this one. The serene feel to the lone cabin along the seashore is well captured.
Excellent work in PP.
Now go away down the road and leave us alone, we thought we picked out a quieter place where we would not be found...

Wonderful capture this lovely landscape!
Colors are amazing1

Boa noite Linda
I like very much the composition...it seems a vey hidden place.
A myst place when I look the hose the light give me the Idea of a ghost house...scary but all the rest have the colours of Paradise. You can start the movie. When I get older( eheheh) you teach me HDR. You are working it better and better.
( So now you are protected to H1N1...I hope you feel better and better).
Um abrašo

I love the colours and the light you got here; I don't know how you have done it, but the house and the trees around seems that are shining from inside.
