    Very good treatment of the old church. Keeping that sky keeps the light down behind your main objects. So far, so good— I mean, ’I’ve liked them all so far!’
    Bodie WY, or Bodie, CA? Or dare I ask?

  • Bodie California off of Highway 395. Thanks Much for the comment!

    Yup, I thought it looked familar. If you get out a map and look north along the CA/NV border just a little way you’ll find “Mesquite Valley”, mostly on the Nevada side, and in it, a town named “Sandy”. The map folks are still using a map from the early 1900s. That’s where I used to live, it’s called “Sandy Valley”. “Sandy” consists of an old building fairly cosse to some old Indian and then Spanish salt mines. Used to go over to the nearby ghost-towns often. Goodsprings, NV is also a ghost town, but abt 50 people live there. it’s pretty cool.

  • Thanks Much Dayonda! Im always ready go Out n About to new places. Since You know a lot about Kali & NV feel free to inform me bout new places!

    Perfect. Love the treatment.
    Ben do you do a single 3 AEB or are do you do multiple AEB?

  • Actually I dont use AEB Tyler. This image was from my early days of HDR which was only 6 to 11 shots. Now my HDR shots are about 18 to 23.
