Very cool image! Lots of great drama going on.

To the photographer - ignore the negative comments. It's interesting how many people who level harsh criticism never post their own photos, or if they do, they are completely lackluster. It's almost like they want you to do worse so their stuff doesn't look quite so bad by comparison.

TimR32225: Nice shot, Congratulations! My cousin has a virtually identical photo taken of this same raccoon in this same hollow tree in Viera Wetlands, taken one day before yours. How interesting is that?! I see that you cloned in the hole in the back of the tree on the upper right side. Great photo!

That's so cool - I saw him as I was driving by just peeking out at me! (And I did take care of a small hole in the back :)

On photo big sable point at twilight in the Lighthouse challenge (7 comments in total)

Thanks for the kind words - This shot actually happened after 2 trips over 2 years and 5 hikes before everything actually fell in place for a photo. 5 different times I'd set up in this spot only to have everything fizzle out at sunset. I was THRILLED when this finally happened!

Earthlight: Brilliant! Manual HDR?

Thanks - And yes, a couple shots manually blended in PS - mostly just for the sun and the area right around it.

On photo Starburst Sand Dune in the Desert challenge (9 comments in total)

Thanks for the nice comments :)

It's at Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley and it's a two shot manual blend - one for the sky / dunes / most of the photo and another to keep the sun and area immediately around it under control.

On photo Superior Fury in the Water Extremes challenge (20 comments in total)

Wow, didn't know this photo would stir up so many people! It's a two shot blend - one for the sky, one for everything else. Although it may not look it in the photo, a blended shot was the only way to capture the tonal range in the image - otherwise parts of the the sky would be blown out and the image would would hit the 'ol recycle bin on the PC.

I too prefer to capture an image in a single shot, but sometimes it's just not do-able.
