I like HDR photos that look natural. Not
over-processed and this is how you will see my HDR work.

This sunset and people having picnic was captured in Ottawa, Britania YC.

Britannia Yacht Club is located in the west end of Ottawa, at the head of the Deschenes Rapids, providing access to 25 miles of picturesque sailing waters on the Ottawa River. Incorporated in 1887, BYC is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Canada, and with close to 1200 members, one of the largest. ref: “;

Dedicated to my mother.

This makes me think of the white light that people see when in their last moments. Well this is what people who almost died and came back, say what they see.

Use of AEB and this is the third automatic shot. I like the high key here. I find it expresses Purity.
