The Winter Cottonwood Tree

The Winter Cottonwood Tree

I took my morning sunrise drive in eastern Butler county yesterday and decided to try experimenting in RAW HDR. RAW images are not processed by the camera software and editing is done externally. I set my camera up to bracket 3 shots. Most of my HDR work involves 5 bracketed shots but the buffer in the camera struggles with saving to the SD Card when saving in RAW and JPEG.

My shot of the day was a lone and quite large Cottonwood Tree being backlit by the rising sun. I took various shots of it along the roadside but this one below was my favorite and turned out beautifully. Appear like my switching things up worked and will be doing more of this in the near future.
