Thanksgiving Morning Hike

Here are some scenes from my 4.8 mile walk through Waterford and up the Champlain Canal Trail and back. I carried my 5D Mark III, EF 70-300mm DO zoom and 40mm pancake. Since all these are HDR composites I'll simply indicate which lens and, if the zoom, at what focal length the scene was captured.

Waterford from the Bridge - EF 70-300mm DO at 70mm.

Waterford Street Scene - EF 70-300mm DO at 70mm.

Looking North up the Canal Trail - EF 70-300mm DO at 70mm.

The Back End of Momentive Chemical Plant - EF 70-300mm DO at 70mm.

Backlit Grasses - EF 70-300mm DO at 300mm.

Looking SouthWest back down the Canal Trail - EF 40mm Pancake.

A Fun Day with HDR Scenics

Today was a fun day. Some nice clouds, a couple breaks of sun, the 24-105mm zoom and a four mile walk made for a nice morning. Then, I realized that HDRSoft had a new version of PhotoMatix Pro I could download and my license for the previous version made it free.

PhotoMatix Pro 5 had been crashing about every third photo which led me to see if there was an update. So far version 6 has not crashed.

All these are HDR composites, some with all five bracketed files, and some with four, leaving out the most over exposed image. All were made with the 5D Mark III and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens. The exposure information is for the normally exposed file.

The thirteen image gallery can be viewed at http://trulandphoto.zenfolio.com/waterfordflight.

Back to the Pancake Project

After several sports and event outings I went for my walk over to Waterford Harbor this morning with the 5D Mark III and 40mm pancake lens. It was a cloudy and breezy morning but there were some breaks of light and HDR processing manages to get color out of almost any conditions.

Here are some of the results. Exposure information is for the normally exposed file. All are five file composites.
