    Best viewed large… would love to go back and visit in the winter time and see the difference w/ only limbs. Love the chair in front of the not so much mantel.

  • Good thought, it was a little tough with the wind blowing and the leaves moving. I actually used the single shots for the windows, and everything else the multiple exposure HDR.
