It has been very wet here recently, but we got a short reprieve today. I came away with a few dents in my gear (my 14-24 f/2.8 cap gave its life to save its lens) and me while walking on the moss covered rocks, but all-in-all a good outing.
For fun I have included all the processing details for this image below. If you have these tools you will know what I mean.
Processing was done with Photomatix and Lightroom from nine shots bracketed at EV 1 apart (easy to set on the D700).
Photomatix, tone mapping, details enhancer:
- Strength = 70
- Saturation = 70
- Luminosity = 4
- L.Adjustments = 5
- S.Highlights = 50
- WP = 0.393%
- BP = 0.746%
- M.Smoothing = 6
- Foreground water is pulled directly from the -1 EV image. If I was printing I would do many more minor fixes as there are some ghosts and a few other minor issues.
Lightroom (after HDR processing):
- Recovery = 100
- Fill = 10
- Black = 5
- Clarity = 50
- Temp = 15 (for sRGB conversion)
- Grad from top angled with log w/sat -15, clarity 100
