Mangrove After Sunset at Everglades National Park Florida

Apr 8, 2012 | Florida Everglades & Wetlands

During my recent trip to the Everglades National Park I did some light painting after sundown. To paint the Mangrove Tree I used my pilot light on my off camera flash. The orange glow in the background is the light from Miami. I really like how this photo came out. However I envision something a little different, a much better photo, if all the elements come together. As for post processing, this was a single exposure RAW file that I tone mapped in Photomatix Pro to bring out the colors and detail.
