Lost Maples State Natural Area, Texas
Lost Maples is in the Sabinal River canyon west of San Antonio just north of Vanderpool. There is a concentration of big tooth maple trees isolated in the canyon that draws big crowds in the fall. Some of the trees are practically growing right out of the canyon walls. I drove out there Thursday and came away with a few good images. The light was generally bright so I did some HDR exposures. This is one of them, also enhanced with Luminar 4. All comments welcome. >=))>

Bill, that big Maple is glowing beautifully here. The greens behind are a fine contrasting color. You’ve handled the light well. My one thought here is, “Could you have moved a few steps left to line up the Maple with the gap in the foreground shrubs?”

Beautiful photo of this wonderful maple Bill. I’ve been to Lost Maples several times, there is always something great to photograph there. Great fall image.
