Picture of the Week 9-15-2009

Hey look what’s back, it’s picture of the week! I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since I posted one of these. Honestly my August was crazy and I just didn’t shoot that much. We recently purchased an Adventure Pass that allows us to get into many Orange County parks. One of our new favorite parks is Peters Canyon, located off of Jamboree Road and very close to our house. We have been hiking a lot lately which is a lot more fun when we bring Mimi the cattle dog along. Most of the time we hike after work which is when the sun starts to go down. The lighting during this time is beautiful and the past few days the clouds were being very photogenic. This week’s photo is a shot from one of our after work hikes. I’ve taken the liberty to put it through Photomatix and make it into an HDR. This photo was shot hand held which I don’t recommend when doing HDR because as you can see the objects don’t align perfectly but I still love the results!
Photo Info: Shot with the 5D Mark II. Comprised of three photos. Photo 1- ISO 500, F8 at 1/400 of a second. Photo 2- ISO 500, F8 at 1/800 of a second. Photo 3- ISO 500, F8 at 1/200 of a second. I also used a polarizing filter for a more dramatic effect.
