Not a bad place to end up I supposes, a head stone beneath a tree…providing the timing is right!

I have a number of shots from this spot hidden behind a little chapel in Mount Wilson but I really struggled to present what I saw on the day in the image – I did bracket all my shots since the dynamic range was too much for the camera, however in the case of this image, after using a automated HDR technique I came back to just a single exposure shot…I just could not get that HDR image to look the way I wanted – very frustrating.

So, I ended up with this, its a two shot panorama (there was meant to be another frame to make it wider but things did not work out for that 🙁 either ) using just a single neutral exposure. Its pretty amazing the level of detail/dynamic range you can get from the D750 and a single frame..

anyways, keen to hear your thoughts, love it, hate it, ambivalent? view large

Exif love:
D750 coupled with 24-70mm f2.8 @ 24mm Aperture: f/10 and Shutter Speed: 1/2s

  1. Thanks for your thoughts +Bryn Parke .
    its is quite a wide scene and I was trying to get that panoramic view, there was quite some more interest up top which would have looked quite nice too. I do have a vertical composition of that tree which may work well too, again thankyou for the comment and suggestions, always very welcome.

  2. Beautiful Autumn capture +Gerard Blacklock!! Love it!! 🙂 Think it's a great composition, you can see the avenue of red leafed trees either side of that beautiful centre piece!! The stunning star-burst and golden glow beaming in to the fore ground is super and is really lighting up those reds!! 🙂 Well I'm sure glad you captured that image when you did… doubt there'd be any brave leaves around after the gale force winds we've had of late! …I'm no expert… but that's just what spoke to me from your image! 😉
