I am borrowing a bit of composition style today from my friend Jonathon who has some amazing shots of flower and foliage details. This is some lichen on a branch along the Almaden Creek Trail in San Jose. This was taken on an early February morning while attempting to get one of my Daily Shoot shots together. Until work lets up some, I’ll be posting from the archives for another couple days.
This HDR image is composed of 3 exposures. My goal here was to keep it very natural looking. There are slight bumps in saturation to bring out the grass, which is actually very green on-site. I’m very pleased with the results. The amount of detail in the wood and the growth on the fence is very sharp. This was taken at the same location as my previous photo, Old Barn, off of Casa Loma Rd. near Morgan Hill. Click through to see the detail on SmugMug.
