A nearby Colorado Springs City Park, Quail Lake, provides fishing, a bit of kayaking access and we even saw some standup paddle boarders.

Really like your handling of the sky. You state above Multiple Exposures but do not say how many. I know it is sunset but multiple exposures processed correctly should have shown more detail of the surroundings of the lake than this. I find the bottom portion to be far too dark for a good HDR process IMHO. Thanks for posting.

@digicam sorry, it was 3 shots, +1, 0, -1.

@digicam and, I did go back and opened the shadows. There is plenty of detail there. Thanks for the comment.

@javh , Thanks for the reply. Three Exposures is not a lot to work with even for this shot but I am glad to hear you could get more detail out of it. Keep shooting and posting. Really like your work.
