Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 100, 3 Exposure HDR @ f/16
  While hanging around in Vonore waiting for my daughter to get done with cheerleading practice, I found this neat tree that looked like it was reaching for the sky.  I set the camera up directly under it and pointed the lens straight up.
  Lots of great things happening here from the texture of the bark on the tree, to the bright green of the leaves, to the bright blue sky. My favorite part is the warm golden glow of the sun striking the trees from the right. I just really fell in love with everything going on here.
  This is the first HDR image I have processed in Picturenaut. It is a free down loadable HDR software at  I found it very easy to use compared to other free HDR software but, as usual, not as versatile as the big boy programs. I actually really liked it and it turned out a very nice image.


  1. Nice shot, Jerry! Like the light/shadows created by the sun.

  2. Nice shot man. Love that bark.

    Doesn't look like it turned out half bad man. I tried that program a while ago but for some reason my comp just did not like it. Glad to see you got it working. Maybe I'll try it again.

  3. I would love to see something like this in B&W. I love the way the sunlight plays off the bark and branches..

    Nice snap!
