While driving home from a camera club meeting, I was stopped for a light when I noticed the winding road passing under several railroad bridges. I had been on this road before but never noticed this view.
I took several sets of three exposures. I liked this set the best, so I used Photomatix to create and tone-map the HDR image. Then I used Photoshop to crop, saturate the color of the grass, clone out some minor imperfections, and do a little dodging and burning. I considered converting the image to black and white, but I think the color image does a better job of drawing the eye to the winding curve in the distance.

Great view. I'm not fond of the over-processed look.

The eye is really drawn down the road and through the twists and turns
