The sky was about to open up and downpour as I was taking the shot, so I had to move quickly. I bracketed the scene, but still only used one frame for the final product. One of my favorite things about Lightroom 4 is the better development sliders. It the ability to recover skies so much better than previous versions.
The photograph was shot with the Leica M9 and Zeiss 25mm lens.
For processing, I used Lightroom to get the exposure and cropping to my liking. I then opened the onOne Software Perfect Photo Suite and used Perfect Effects and Focal Point to create the look I visioned.
Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
