First try at this combination of techniques (HDR + Orton from a single RAW). Once I got the file conversion thing off pat, it worked quite well. The single RAW technique allowed me to use flash, which would have been fraught with problems had I used conventional bracketing techniques.
Personal note: this is the first photo I've ever seen that represents both her hair colour and her eyes correctly. It's usually one or the other - vibrant hair gives her brown eyes and green eyes tend to tone down her hair. Cameras tend to disbelieve what they see, left to their own devices.
Ooh, listen at me. I'm becoming a camera geek.
