Autumn Comes to Southeast Texas

The cooler temperatures, low humidity and autumn colors have finally begun to arrive in southeast Texas and all I can say is “Thank God”. It’s been a hot, humid summer and with all the roof repair work due to Hurricane Ike, we sure could use a break.

This image was taken Monday at the Monument Hill State Park near La Grange, Texas. The colors had just started to change and the mid-morning sun gave the trees a wonderful glow. I decided to process this as an HDR image using Photomatix Pro to see how the colors would turn out. Not too bad for a walk in the park.

Shots taken with a Canon 40D hand-held, EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM at 28mm, f/19 at ISO 200 on SanDisk digital film. The HDR file was made from three RAW images tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro. All other post capture processing was done in Lightroom 2 and Noise Ninja. Click on the image above for a larger version.

  2. Jeff, can you at some point do side by side before HDR and after HDR? I like the end results but sometimes am interested in what you start with. Be interesting to see!

  3. You put in a lot of effort in post-processing, and it was really worth it. Great photo! Very sharp! Mitch
