Ah, to be back in Palm Springs basking in the sun while sipping a cold one. Soon enough…

This is the second shot I’ve posted from this amazing house I had the pleasure of visiting one afternoon while in Palm Springs. Not much to say here. Beautiful day, beautiful pool…it was hard to screw this one up 🙂

Oh, one note: I downloaded a trial of Unified Color’s HDR Express last night and used it to process this image. I was very impressed with how real the tonemapped result was and the edit you see here is not far off from the raw output. I’ll be using the trial for the next 30 days and I’ll try to keep you all updated on what I think of it.

Canon EOS 50D, Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5, 10mm, F 16, ISO 100

There is so much to enjoy in this shot! Between the colors, the sun bursts, and the reflections I am in heaven. Not to mention I really want to be here swimming in that pool!

PS. I really like HDR Express. You may also like HDR Expose as it gives you a lot more control.

Really not fair with these double sunbursts, youre making me look like an amateur.

Love the shot dude, really love the fading mountains in the background.

Beautiful shot Heath, so glad to here all you chumps are finally giving HDR Express a chance :-).

Jim Denham - April 6, 2011 - 7:36 am

Fabulous shot Heath! Like the comp, the reflections, and warmth! Well done!

Oh man, this place looks amazing! Great image.

Scott Ackerman - April 6, 2011 - 8:18 am

This shot is ridiculous! Great work bud. Really dig the sunbursts.

Justin - April 6, 2011 - 8:21 am

Cool. Keep us posted on your thoughts.

Double sunbursts for life! This image is truly a feast, I agree, there’s so much to enjoy here, I especially love the reflections in the pool.

Those twin lightbursts rock this shot, man. Really great application of HDR Express. I’ve been using it for weeks and have been happy for the most part.

Two perfect subursts, nice one! (or two, ahha)

This makes me want to be in Cancun sooner than later. In London Ontario, it’s been snowing today [and raining]. It is pretty crummy and this photo is a sign of hope for all of us in need of Vitamin D

The sunburst reflection is the BOMB! Great work Heath. May give the free trial of HDR Express a try.

Brian Furbush - April 6, 2011 - 10:44 am

Great one Heath – makes me look forward to spring!

Chris Kenison - April 6, 2011 - 11:03 am

Great capture. Love the double sunbursts!

Mark Blundell - April 6, 2011 - 3:05 pm

Looks like a tough gig staying there.

Lovely image – really like the reflection of the sun in the water.

Adam Olson - April 6, 2011 - 5:30 pm

I love the sunbursts Heath! Great job with this shot!

Chris DeAngelis - April 7, 2011 - 10:24 pm

Love the reflections in the pool, especially that sunburst! Really awesome shot! I’ll be interested to see more of your processing with HDR Express!

Scott Wood - April 20, 2011 - 10:48 pm

That reflection of the sunburst is amazing. I think that there are other elements to this image, but I really can’t see them past that reflection. 🙂 Great image.

[…] other day he dropped a gem on his blog from sunny California of a pool side composition featuring a sweet double sunburst. It left a lot of us in awe, sort of like the double rainbow guy. I decided I couldn’t just […]
