    About

    My daughters were playing on the playground of Vrijbroekpark in Mechelen, there is this steel tube that kids crawl through, so I ask my daughters to pose for a second.

    The shot

    Standard 3 exposures HDR on a tripod using the Sigma 10-20mm lens.

    Yep, this is/was an HDR, see further on...

    Photoshop

    The shot was taken as an HDR, but that really wasn't needed at all, however I used the HDR part for the tube and blended the normal exposure in for Caitlin.

    There was a man moving in the background, so I clone stamped him away.
    I blurred the background.

    I used the brightness effect twice to get it to full white and then used the gradient tool on the masks to make it gradually fade away.

      Very cool post processing. I've never used HDR for portrait before. Maybe I should try it sometimes. Great work!
