"Last week the Cape Cod area was hit by a hurricene and then yesterday we had a nice little Tropical Storm roll through, brought lots of rain to both areas. I took this last year during my trip to see Tricia Treen (Ttreen).
I did an HDR process on a single image, and then added a vignetting.
Have a great day!

WOW Linda, what a spetacular DOF. The POV is also very good and can lead our eyes to a beautiful sky full of clouds. Excellent HDR as usual with you.
Have a good day.

Hi Linda,
Loads of detail in this with that deep DoF - F/16 keeping everything in good focus, nice rich colour and that vignetting draws your eyes to the centre. Best wishes

Hi Linda...very nice shot...I really like your tones in these shots..not overdone and very interesting..nice work.

Hi Linda,
Cape Cod is a very popular destination for people from my region.
Seeing this fantastic view, I understand this keen interest.
I like the atmosphere, especially, the ambient light, the white boats and the small touches of colors, against the deep blue sea and sky, this is so attractive.
Clever post-treatment. Very beautiful coastal place well rendered.

I wanna go on the Pirate Cruise! I like the layers - sea/boats/sky with the wee pirate boatd breaking it up a little - also like that the HDR stuff was in no way overdone. Was HDR necessary on this one, though? It seems like a bright enough day? Sorry, just curious.

Hi Linda,

It's kind of a lovely painting. Beautifully composed.
Wow . . You did great with HDR technique.


Linda, an absolutely gorgeous scenery shot. One of these days I've GOT to learn the HDR method of formatting a photograph. You've done wonders to an otherwise mundane shot giving it that professional post card feel. Great work!

Hi Linda...
Nice shot with so nice light...
Nice composition...

Hi Linda,

Good capture here, from the 'pirate cruise' in the foreground to the boats in the background the eyes are lead nicely through the shot. The post processing work finishes off the image nicely.



Hi Linda,
A fine harbor view well captured and presented. Like the clear blue colours. Picture is pin sharp and the rule of thirds well accomplished.
