Fan Palms


Nikon D80 18-135mm @ 31mm ISO 160 3-bkts Lr3, HDR Efex Pro; Color Efex Pro

Palm trees are prevalent throughout Southern California.  This shot was made in Chino Hills, California.  I was attracted to the symmetry and grace of the palms when I captured this image, then brought emphasis to the sky and balanced the blue of the sky against the warm tones of the buildings using Color Efex Pro.

  2. Beautiful colors in this one, especially with the way you captured the sunlight on the trees and buildings against the dark of the sky. My only critique would be that the horizon is a little tilted–but not enough that I can’t enjoy a beautiful image like this one. Kudos!
