"Go as far as you can see; when you get there you'll be able to see farther." ~ Thomas Carlyle
This little bit of forest between a campsite and the Freeman River has been selectively logged by generations of beavers. The undergrowth is lush and green and the light filters through beautifully.
I’ve downloaded the beta version of Photomatix (thanks to Terry for the advice) and this is 8 (!) exposures taken at the scene (in a very slight breeze) and tone mapped and processed in the Compressor (whatever that is). I’m trying to get over my awe at the tonal range and see it objectively, so I would really appreciate everyone’s honest opinion. Is it appealing, first of all, but is it overdone?
I’m off now for a few days, heading to BC where everything is on fire. The air is so thick with smoke this morning it looks like fog and I can smell it coming in the window beside me. I don’t know if it’s from the Alberta or BC fires, but according to the firemaps they’re all quite a ways away. I’ll see you all next week. Have a great weekend.
