As a note, this isn't an HDR (not that I never take them, but I have yet to date posted one). Single shot, grad ND and a circular polarizer. Processing was to level the highlights and shadows in Aperture, run through noise reduction, then using ColorEFX and the Tonal Contrast filter adjusted the specific tones to get where I wanted to be, and finally B&W conversion using SilverEFX amplifying white/black and applying structure.
