I like this image very much. It’s the product of one of my initial experiments with Photomatix HDR software. (My previous HDR attempt using Photoshop on the same source images as used here gave poor results.)
The setting is a swampy area adjacent to the road to Pa-hay-okee Overlook in Everglades National Park. The light looking through the trees towards the sunrise was beautiful but there was no way to capture the look without using HDR techniques. I made a number of bracketed image sequences of which this is the best, but the final results looked poor until I tried Photomatix. The automated HDR look probably isn’t suitable for all situations but it works well here.
