I shot this down at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands a few days ago. It was a peaceful and quiet morning. Yet when I walked the hiking trails, I was acutely aware that all of Orange County is just a mile away. We need places like this.
This photo is a tone mapping experiment. I like the results to a certain extent, but I do not like the halo affect near the border of the water and plants. I’ll have to work on that. All tips are welcome.
