Several storms rolled through Warren, PA yesterday evening. I spent much of the time outside, sitting on our picnic pavilion, while the storms rolled through. Our picnic pavilion has a metal roof. I enjoyed listening to the sound of the rain falling, although it hitting on the metal roof was almost deafening! I enjoyed the cool, refreshing breeze that came as a result of the storms too.
I took a few photographs in between the storms.
Our next-door neighbor’s Rhododendron bush.
I like how the picnic pavilion openings provide framing for the sky.
The image below is a fusion of three photographs. I placed my camera on one of the pavilion’s banisters. Using manual settings, I took one image correctly exposed. The second image was taken with an exposure value of +2; and the third image was taken with an exposure value of -2. I used f/22 for all three images and an ISO of 200 (the lowest ISO that my Olympus OM-D E-M5 is capable of. I used a program called Photomatix to fuse the three images together. I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4‘s detail extractor and tonal contrast filters to enhance the fused image.
