I was up in Idyllwild shooting a panoramic sunset from one of my favorite locations and I saw the full moon rising above the trees so I took this photo while waiting for the sun to set. This is a HDR comprised of 3 photos. I used Nik Software HDR EFex Pro with the realistic strong preset. I liked the rustic look it gave it. I have pretty happy with the new HDR EFex Pro for creating natural, realistic HDR photos, while still allowing for strong artistic styling when it is wanted.
The moon was amazingly bright and I was able to hike back down to town without any lights. I didn’t expect there to be so much snow up there but it was 1-3 feet deep and icy to boot. It made for a nice scene for my panoramic though. I will be posting the panoramic next week, and I will likely be using it for my first tutorial.
