January 6, 2008 HDR Thriller (maroon)

As you can see from the archive of search words, every now and then I use a color as the search word. The search word today was "maroon." Evidently nobody takes HDR photos of anything maroon except a mountain range in Colorado named Maroon Bells. Almost every shot in this search was a view of them. Its a good thing it's a lovely view. I liked the doublet yesterday, so it's two pics again today... both from virtually the same location. Above is a color shot and below a black and white.
Enjoy them more in large on Black...

PHOTO 2 (below) IN LARGE ON BLACK

I often think Black and white HDRs are superior, but the black and white shot below has some noise in the shadows and clouds, but I like the foreground and the contrasty mood. The color one above has amazing reflections. The ripples on the water are interesting because the mountain itself has ripple like patterns. It seems almost as if the real mountain "reflects" the ripples in the water.
