The Wilmington Dam, New York

As I  drove through the Adirondacks during the height of fall color, I noticed this interesting area in Wilmington, New York. It had recently stopped raining and there was an amazing quality of light at the scene. The yellow band of color along the top of the dam was interesting, although I have no idea what caused it. The rocks in the area are very red in color, almost matching the tree color.

Point Iroquois Light, Michigan

Point Iroquois Light, Michigan

A beautiful structure found in Michigan’s upper peninsula.

This lighthouse looked gorgeous in the sun, but a touch of HDR treatment was needed to overcome the harsh light, and get back to the natural look of the scene.

The other problem that needed to be dealt with in processing was the prospective. Due to the vertical nature of the scene their was severe keystoning. If you are interested in the fix for this see Fixing Perspective.
