This is The Dog with her Lady out for a nice stroll. It was another very bright day with deep shadows . . . perfect for High Dynamic Range(HDR) imaging. I’ve spotted this pair a few times while on my photo walks and decided to give them top billing today.
Processing: This shot was produced from nine exposures at .5 ev apart. After some initial blending with Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 to capture the motion of the stroll and a monochrome conversion with Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 to add a more grainy appearance, I decided to make it a warm, duotone in Adobe Photoshop. I also used Adaptive Wide Angle to line up the verticals and get a nice, vanishing point with the lines leading to the left side of the image.
Equipment used: Nikon D700 with 20-35mm f/3.5-4.5 lens, 35mm, f/16, ISO 400. Handheld.
