Mangrove and Mackeral Sky

by Paul Marcellini

A wonderful winter sky in the Florida Keys. These mangroves seem to grow in some of the harshest conditions, yet continue to push on.

Wow. Absolutely awesome. Great contrast of colors. One can almost feel the humidity, smell the ocean, feel the strength of the Mangrove.

Thanks everyone. This is not an HDR by program but is a manual blend using masks. I feel it creates a much more natural image.

Super shot here Paul…masks do present a more natural feel…congrats

I love the way everything is in focus. And the way it “pops” so to speak. Beautiful…
