The Old Fisherman and his Cormorant [2]

This one was a real challenge to process, given the lighting conditions, handheld shot, and the bird moving slightly.

 

Photomatix 4 helped a lot with its improved de-ghosting feature, but it still required lots of post-processing including digital blending. I must have spent more than 2 hours on this one. Still some imperfections, but I've decided to post it!

 

7 exposures HDR tone-mapping + digital blending.

 

Please have a look at The Old Fisherman and his Cormorant [1] taken later that day, after sunset.
