This picture was shot on a tripod with three exposures (-2..0..+2 EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image. Applied Topaz Adjust Spicify filter and fade the effect back to 35%.
Finally, the weather forecast says great weather this weekend. So, I'll be out shooting somewhere. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
