Another from Saturday morning, but this time down at Padley Gorge with Fran and Martin.

There was a light mist hanging about which enhanced the suns rays through the canopy, had an ethereal feel to it in places.

Technically this is a blend from five exposures [from a 7 shot range] to maximise the tonal range. Hand blended using a mixture of layers and luminosity masking. Could've done it using HDR, but luminosity masking gives more control and helps to keep the shot feeling natural.

Cheers for looking in,
Paul

Very nicely done mate, must have taken a while all that blending, but it's resulted in a shot which looks exactly as you would have seen it with the eye. Wink

Didn't take that long to be honest Harsh although longer than most of my shots. The central exposure was pretty good on it's own, but it just needed the addition of some more highlight and shadow details. All in all less than an hour from start to finish I reckon.

Cheers guys,
Paul

Fine amount of detail in there Paul. Didn't really get anything from my little jaunt in the woods, wish I could have stayed a bit longer to really have a good look around.

Congrats on the HC BTW.
