This was taken on the same morning as Wet II and is actually a extreme close-up of the base of our Palm Tree. The area is only about 6 inches wide, if that; the log in this photo is actually a little stick.
Because half the photo is in shadow, the left side is a bit blown out. I was planning to retake the photo on the next watering day… but the electricity was out for the whole town (some pics from that are coming) and then the next day was cloudy. I finally decided to try to repair this pic as much as possible in Aperture. If I get the perfect opportunity to try it again, I will.
I’m sure Mike and Karen will recommend I try an HDR, and I’m sure they are right! If only I had the software! I’ll take any and all recommendations for improving this shot.
