I was startled to find these flowers still in full bloom in October, so I stopped and photographed them. I knew with a 30 mph wind, it was going to be difficult to do an HDR, but gave it a try. I had the camera set on JPG setting from a previous shoot, which not desirable.
Furthermore, I used the new Nik HDR pro software, this was 4 images hot in the jpeg mode, I also used Nik new control points to create a focus point in the image.
Enjoy the flowers while you can because winter is coming.
