Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Been having fun with the new camera. The higher quality means I can really push the digital manipulation without fearing the photo will disintigrate into a mass of unviewable pixels. I wandered back across the road yesterday looking for more interesting photos of the building tear down. They had everything blocked off so I hoofed it around the lot looking for a spot. I found one on the backend, gates uncovered but a lot of tree coverage. I originally thought the view was ruined, but snagged a some anyway. When I got home I was surprised with a couple of them. I somehow managed to grab a spectacular shot that was ripe for HDR fun. I think I need to adjust the brightness on some of the leaves, but all in all, far better than anticipated:

The leaf and fir needle definition is wonderful. However sometimes it's hard to know when to stop, so maybe I'll just leave this as is.
