I've been trying really hard to pull back on the HDR processing so as not to get too much oversaturation or unrealistic results. The HDRs are all 9 shot RAWs processed in Photomatix Pro 3 and adjusted in CS3. All taken with a Nikon d300 and Sigma 10-20mm except for the last 2 which were on a 18-200mm lens. Hope you enjoy.
Raven Rock Falls HDRs: This was my first time to Raven Rock Falls. It is north of Lake Toxaway off Cold Mtn Rd. It was a short hike down to the falls, passing under rocky overhangs and other areas much suited to snakes and the like! The falls area was beautiful and a perfect area to just sit and reflect, which is just what I did between shots!
I was able to climb (somewhat safely) up the falls about halfway. The bedrock was beautiful and had plant life and moss growing all around.
Eastatoe Falls HDRs: Went back to one of my favorite falls in the area to get some more shots.
Eastatoe Falls "Eye of the Vine":
While shooting at Eastatoe Falls I looked up and noticed some bug eaten leaves with some beautiful diffuse light shining through that I had to capture (non HDR :) )
