Wetlands in High Definition Resolution by 

Wetlands of the Vic Fazio Wildlife Preserve are an ancient piece of the Sacramento Delta 80 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. I can’t even imagine a water flow miles wide at times and moving so slowly you can’t tell it by looking. Fascinating in a way only the The Everglades still exist in the US and the Nile River in the Americas.

Oloneo PhotoEngine’s HDR program supplied the wildly “over the top” editing. In fact the program’s preset is called “over the top”. There was extensive cleaning up of the shot with PhotoShop Elements 7 cuz HDR pulls out all the warts as well as the wrinkles, zits, scars, discolouration, pimples, etc. you never see in the original image unless you’re using RAW files from the beginning and I wasn’t. Wanna know how dirty your camera’s sensor and mirrors are? Do an HDR of a light colour. ARRGH!

In the tho, this is a fun exercise in excess. :-D


holes, rock, water, ancient

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    Nice work. :) Am confused though— the title here does not match the title on my activity feed. Are you just that talented and skilled or is it just a glitch on my feed? No matter. Pic is cool. :)

  • (My reply 12 days ago was obviously dumped from my Android and I didn’t know it. Sorry!) Yes, titles change as soon as I find one that’s better or someone suggests something cool. Also, if you happen to be clicking on something in the first few seconds after I upload it, I may find a goof, pull it out of view, and repost it 2 minutes later with a fix. My proofreading is nowhere near “foolproof”. LMAO!

    The location is still the Yolo Bypass Wetlands (more properly, the Vic Vazio Wildlife Preserve) and the original shot is still just as boring. Without HDR, I couldn’t even pretend this was worth showing anyone so I appreciate the compliment. ;-)

    over the top or not, great shot of a tremendous sky ~ and reflection ~ glad to see you’re having fun ~ I’m afraid to look at my sensor and mirror ~ but it does pay to do a cleaning…xx

  • Thanks! The sky was very nice once I got a HDR (Sounds funny that way. The letter “H” isn’t a vowel in the word “high” so I don’t think I should have used the word “an”. But I can’t say it aloud without saying “an”. English grammar teachers, here’s your chance to shine on my dimness!) image. I couldn’t see the reflection either so I’m still touting the HDR for some odd situations of wildness. LOL!
