HDR of Portland, Maine with Texture

Mar 5, 2010 | Photo Art & Montage

This is the best shot I got of Portland, Maine, during my recent trip there. This HDR was photographed on the first day of the trip. The clouds floated away towards the west leaving the east exposed with color during the sunset. This was the only time I saw any color in Maine, the 5 days I was there. I didn’t see the sun once while I was there… boy did I miss Florida!
