While visiting Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring, Maryland, I found this small wedding gazebo nestled in the trees at the end of a long stone tile path flanked with high, majestic evergreens. . .a very picturesque setting. And perfect for this HDR image.
Since the sun was extremely bright, the shadows were deep. So I used seven shots from -3 to +3 ev to balance the image. This is one of those scenes that makes me want to add lots of effects for effect, if ya know what I mean. But, I decided to let it stand on it’s own. Maybe I’ll play with it in the future.
Equipment used: Nikon D700 with 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 set at 20mm, f/22, ISO 400. Manfrotto 190XPROB with 486RC2 ball head.
