Mono Lake HDR

This is Mono Lake after sunset. By this point the rest of the photographers had left, and it was almost completely dark. For a few minutes this pastel scene emerged, only to fade away moments later.

    Good thing you stuck around to capture this! The colors are beautiful! Good job.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Good thinking to stick around. You have a real beauty and I don't believe I've seen these colors in a shot here before.

    My favorite time of day there indeed! You caught it wonderfully. I'm playing around a bit with HDR these days myself and it can do wonders like I'm seeing here… but it's a skill that I'm still learning. Great shot!

    Great Shot Daniel - love the composition and of course great colour reflection. Nicely done
  • Rod 5y

    Great, just great. We had some very similar colors at our shoot in late November, and then too people bailed out too soon (although in fairness it was bitterly cold and we were dressed for it).

    Your judicious use of hdr really does the scene justice. My shot falls flat in comparison:

    Thanks for all your feedback.

    @rahtenkhamen Yes, it looks like you had similar lighting in this one. Very cool. With some more post-processing I think it would look similar.

    Love the processing.

    Thanks, Lee! I appreciate the comment.

    Very nice. I have some unprocessed HDR shots I took there, but it was closer to midday so the lighting wasn't fantastic. Great sky and reflections in this one though!
