HDR/Monochrome/Photos Redone - Lake Tahoe/Reno 2012

As I learn more RAW photo processing techniques, I get better and better with my results. Recently I went back and redone some of my photos that I felt I didn't adequately process the first time through that was worth reprocessing. I also recently went back and redid some of my old HDR compositions into 32-bit ones for a more natural look. 32-bit HDR compositions usually look more natural and gives better color than a 16-bit HDR (which was what I was doing before) so I went ahead and redone all of them. The other thing I have done is that I did monochrome (black and white) photo processing. I have went back and redone some of my old photos into monochrome (black and white) photos. These photos for today are from my 2012 Lake Tahoe and Reno trip. You can see those original photos here.

I think this was on my trip from Truckee, CA to Lake Tahoe. Where exactly I don't know. I found a place on the road and turned out because it looked beautiful covered in snow. It seems to be some kind of hiking trail head. Not too sure because everything was drowned in snow. This is an HDR composition I redid.

This was at the hiking trail from the first photo. I tried to redo this HDR, but it failed, so I just processed one of the exposures.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
