On the hike in the Shenandoah River Park we came upon a simple cabin set back about 200 feet from the river. The tree line visible above the porch railing on the right is on the river's edge. I was drawn both to the view as well as the green door and doorknob. The composition may not work for everyone but I shot to include both the doorknob as well as a view down the river valley. It is close to noon and the sun is high and to the right making the porch very shaded. So I needed to address the wide range of light. Using the exposure bracketing on the Olympus OMD, I shot handheld 3 shots rapid fire at +/- 1 f stop. The shots were then merged in HDR Efex. Olympus [email protected], 1/200s (and +/- 1 ev), f13, ISO 400.
