Bridges and Blue Skies

What a BEAUTIFUL day! Woke up to fog and a thick layer of frost on everything. but by early morning the sun started to break through with brilliant blue skies and wispy white clouds with highs in the mid 50's! This was taken right down the gravel road from us and in the summer it's part of our nightly walk. On occasion we'll see Hank wading in the stream...he's either a Heron or Egret...not sure which! One of my favorite places!

I totally forgot to add I used a Fisheye Lens on this one!
This is really a great photo Paula. I had to FAV it. Love the processing.

Gorgeous processing! Did you use an HDR effect?

Lovely scene, and very nice job with the composition.

@jjsooner Thank you Jennifer! Not exactly sure what all I did to get here but I started in LR3 as usual and then I tweaked it over in OnOne & Topaz Adjust software programs. It's not HDR but they have some presets that seem to give the effect of HDR without all the multiple exposures and you can adjust the strength just like picnik! I'm still trying to figure them out but I really love both of these programs.

@zferrie Thank you very much Zoe....Picnik makes the frames very easy! Trust me, if I can do it ANYONE can do it! :)

Paula you are on a roll this week with lovely shots and nice editing. The way you worked with this lovely photo reminds me of another photographer on 365 - Peter Van Allen. At least I think that is his name. He does processing like this. It is really a dramatic shot. Well done. Thx for your nice comments on the shot I almost threw away!
posted March 12th, 2011  
I agree with all above! Very nicely done with the editing! Fav!

The fisheye had a glorious effect on the sky. Love the shot.

Love the fisheye effect! Wonderful shot and the sky is incredible!

A touch of Fairyland there, Paula! A deserving favourite!
posted March 12th, 2011  
What a fantastic shot! I love those frozen trees, they always look amazing! And the fisheye really works!
posted March 12th, 2011  
The fisheye does a good job on this. Great shot!

Awesome use of the fish eye - gives a wonderful perspective.

Gorgeous!

Thumb up!

Beautiful... looks like a painting!

Gorgeous shot Paula. Your landscapes are incredible. I'm not sure about your lens or your processing, you are more advanced than me. I do love what you do though.
posted March 13th, 2011  
This is a great scene. Love the painterly look, the iridescence of the tree, the curves of the stream and road, the clouds, and even the com-trails!
posted March 13th, 2011  
This is a real eye-catcher. The effects you've applied make the tree look almost like an IR capture. A worthy fave for this :)

I am so far behind on commenting I can't believe it! This is wonderful, Paula. A fav! I agee with Wendy - it has the feel of Peter VanAllens' work. The fish eye works so nicely here, very subtle. (So how did Joey like his camera?)

Wow, look at the chemtrails. A fine example of stratospheric aerosol geoengineering.
