Red Barn in Pear Orchard in Hood River Oregon at Sunset - HDR

This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2 EV). I used Photomatix Pro to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask to increase color and contrast in the sky. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.

It was a beautiful warm Sunday drive along the Columbia River Gorge. Since it was early in the day, we decided to stop by the Chinese restaurant in Hood River for dinner before we head out to this red barn in the pear orchard for sunset shots. It was our first time out shooting this red barn, and I was surprised that there were quite a few photographers doing the same thing. Really cool to watch the photographers maneuvering around the rows of pear trees to get the perfect spot to capture this red barn with Mount Hood. Wow, I really didn't realize that it's been more than a month since my last upload!
