The Bowl, Acadia National Park

The Bowl, Acadia National Park

I am in Acadia National Park for a few days, very likely without internet access, so I am preparing a few Pic of the Days drawing on my Acadia shots from last year about this time.

The Bowl is a small pond behind the Beehive.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/500th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

In Lightroom, recovery for the sky and just my basic Clarity, Vibrance and Sharpen.

From Bar Harbor 08.

Prairie Lake with Storm

Prairie Lake with Storm

The North Dakota Prairie sometimes seems as much water as land. There are potholes, ponds, marshes, and fair sized lakes dotting the landscape wherever you look. This small lake is on the edge of Chase Lake NWR, again, on a day full of intermittent rain and glowering skies.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/400th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Dual graduated filters in Lightroom. From the top to darken the sky to its natural tone, and from the bottom to increase brightness and contrast. General Vibrance and Clarity and Landscape sharpen preset.

From Potholes and Prairies 2009.
