Went out scouting on friday for locations and ran into this cool tree. This shot was a 5 exposure HDR. Then ran it thru noise reduction twice to give it a more painterly look. I decided to do a little more with the image to make it a little more interesting. You can check out the before and after shot down in the comments.
I've lived in this city for years..never once did I ever go out to this location which is only a couple miles away.
