Fallen Tree

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, HDR, Prescott

While my husband was chasing down the perfect sunset and shooting leaning shacks, I was capturing everything in between during the hike over. One of the things that caught my eye was this fallen tree. It had a bit of a 3D feel to it when I got to processing, so I didn’t want to mess with it too much.

On a side note, just got back from Utah! The hubby and I had a wonderful time. We shot lots of urbex, storms, and landscape – it will take a bit to get them processed, but we’re excited to be sharing those photos with you in the not too distant future!

Very nice! I start getting the sense about HDR photography.

Thanks for the info about tilt-shift effect. Always good to learn new stuff.
