Window shopping in La Conner Washington

La Conner is quaint little town along the Swinomish Channel. The center of town is considered a historic district and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

This quaint little charmer of a tourist town is a fantastic place to window shop. It’s also a great place to capture awesome photographs of the town, boats, and fun things for sale in the local shops. Then bring the scenes and objects to life using my “secret formula” of HDR post processing.

This is an outdoor lawn chair set I captured while the shop owner wasn’t looking. Shhhh.

Below you can see the original image and the final HDR image (3 frames @ -2, 0, +2).
