When I saw the sky like this and a perfect mirrored reflection... well, let's just say I was a happy camper. This was taken at the Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo. Thanks to BigIslandSherrye for the suggestion to check this spot out. Tons of still ponds, pagodas, and other miscellaneous things to shoot.
Damn that lens distortion. I'm gonna have to use PanoramaPauls advice and start shooting my vertoramas in 3 sections to correct for that. I went back to basics with this shot and tonemapped each section with 3 exposures (-2,0,+2). Blended the -2 onto some washed out parts, and the +2 onto the darker parts. Added curves, contrast, saturation. A bit of highlight and dodge, unsharp mask, and noise ninja.
Have a good Sunday everyone. And those of you who are in Monday already, well you don't qualify for my good Sunday :)
