Overcast Pit Stop (updated)
UPDATE: Upon closer inspection I had some sloppy masking edges. While reworking the edges, I found a better blending mode for the sky. Now the sky’s richer in color! Enjoy!
While Lynne and I were in New Hampshire, we took a trip to go to North Conway. There’s a particularly great little country store there called Zeb’s that we love. On our way there we drove through much of Franconia Notch. I had to pull over and take some pictures of this lake, as I liked the way it sat next to the road, and the view of the mountains in the background.
Of course as soon as I pulled over the clouds came out. They weren’t as dark as the HDR made them out to be, but they look cool nonetheless. This HDR was a bit of a pain getting colors right. After some heavy masking of adjustment layers I think I finally arrived at something I like. This is two different exposures, one at f/8, one at f/16.
