HDR Save – Big Talbot Island State Park

This was an exercise in just how High Dynamic Range techniques can save an impossible shot. This image, shot at metered EV has so much contrast that it would take quite a bit of manipulation in Photoshop to produce an acceptable final image. The highlights were blown out beyond recovery. I worked with 9 exposures in HDR Efex Pro to balance the tonality and still get a realistic presentation of the scene.
