Burke Lake Park

This past Saturday, 3 March 2012, having noticed the sun coming out after a cloudy morning I decided to use the opportunity to take a trip out to Burke Lake Park for some photography. Here are two pictures from this excursion. Each picture is actually a composite of multiple images taken with exposures optimized separately for the sky and the land areas. The sky exposures were also taken with a polarizing filter with the sun at approximately 80 degrees left of the camera. The multiple exposures were then combined in Photoshop Elements 9 and Lightroom 4 to achieve the final results.
