    Oh how FUN!!!!! Great angle … and excellent capture of the texture in the wood!!!

  • Thanks, Lois. That is what originally made me fall in love with the hdr process, the way it brought out details in weathered wood. BTW, I thoroughly enjoyed your profile!

    Wow!! So much detail, that is really gorgeous. Love the fact that the composition is not so standard, with the mill included, as normally done. Great shot!!

  • I was pleased the wheel was far enough removed, I could capture it without the mill! ;)
