Big Sur - Into The Sun HDR
Replaced by a version considering early comments below - Jan 11
Explored Jan 10, 2010! Thank you all very much!
This is a sort of a "HD" remake of one of my most-viewed and favorited photos.
I wanted to see how much of a difference the HDR treatment would make, and I'm pretty impressed - the new process squeezed a lot out of the original RAW file.
This time, I started with "HDR from a single RAW", then de-noised the sky with the amazing Noiseware plug-in from Imagenomics, and applied all sorts of Niksoftware Color Effects followed by Nik Sharpener Pro.
