It’s been a while since I posted an “Intimate Landscape” in HDR. This is another shot from Brookside Gardens in Silver Spring Maryland. In the short time that I spent there, I managed to pop quite a few brackets. This is one of my favorites and shows a beautiful combination of nature, mowing and architecture. And with such a perfect weather day, it was hard to mess anything up.
Processing: Five images from -2 to +2 ev loaded into Nik HDr Efex Pro for Tone Mapping and overall Structure. I emphasized the texture in the walkway and steps and added more structure to that area. Adobe Photoshop was used to add more depth and modify the saturation for a realistic result.
