We had some great clouds today so I took a quick drive over to the Newport Back Bay Ecological Reserve to get a few shots. For those that don't know, the Back Bay Ecological Reserve is a wildlife reserve that bisects the city of Newport Beach and presents some great photography opportunities for both scenery and wildlife. Here's a few from today, hope you enjoy...

Hello - I live in the area and never thought of the NB Back Bay as being particularly photogenic. You have proven me wrong. Nice job.

No, they're nice shots, just appear slightly over processed to me.

Funny. I went down to the beach that same day, because of the storm clouds. Thought to myself "I've never checked out the back bay". I think now I'd like to go give it a shot soon.

PS: I agree with the others. The subject matter and composition are great, but the photos seem a bit oversaturated. Makes it look kind of unnatural.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

Nice shots...and impactful. However, I do agree with the others.
HDR is a powerful tool...but, sometimes it's not easy to create a realistic look with it.

I think you had the right idea but really do need to tone these down. They're way overcooked.

^^^^^^
Same as everything that has been said here. Nice but way too much HDR, especially for the sky.
