November Vacation in the Mountains Post 3 of ?

The black and white photo below is my favorite of the Coleman River, located west of Dillard, Georgia. This is my second hike along marvelous river, a small clear stream with huge boulders and green rhododendrum.

Optionally, click on the photo for a larger view.

FYI: I used Nik HDR Efex Pro a software to combine a series of seven photos, bracketed over-and-under exposed. The result has a wider dynamic range to capture more detail in the shadows and highlights. The photo below is the optimal single exposure of the series.

This is the output High Dynamic Range (HDR) combination of the series of seven images. I converted it to black and white for my favorite above.
