Well, can you believe it? While I was in Washington, North Carolina doing a “Poppin a Few with the Nifty Fifty”, HDR shoot, The Dog and her Lady just happened to be window shopping. I managed to get a little closer for this shot but only got their reflection in the shop window as I didn’t want to ruin the candidity of the scene.
Processing: I used three shots spaced 1 ev apart and loaded them into Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 for a very small amount of Tone Mapping. The new version of the software allows me to choose a frame to freeze action. And it does a pretty good job. After saving to Adobe Photoshop CS6 and balancing the color version for tonality and contrast, I used Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 for the monochrome conversion. Back in Photoshop, I pumped the contrast for this more, high key result.
Equipment used: 50mm f/1.8 AF Nikkor, f/8, ISO 800.
