Old Timer

I like old dead trees. There, I said it :) I have driven by this tree a countless number of times and never noticed it. After looking at some of my other landscapes, a friend told me I had to visit this spot to see this tree. Goes to show you how good picture opportunities are all around you if you are looking.

  • Ap - f/6.3
  • SS - 1/320
  • ISO - 100
  • This was taken at sunrise using 3 different exposures (exposure taken on tree trunk) (-2, 0, +2) and then merged and tonemapped using photomatix.
  • Processing was very minimal. The proper exposure (0) provided a good silhouette, but I really like the colors of the sunrise as well as the detail in the tree trunk, so I decided to blend 3 exposures to get the look I was going for.
