Here is an image that I captured on Lopez Island, Washington. It is actually a combination of 8 different images captured at 2/3 of an f-stop difference between each one. They were then combined using the Nik HDR Effects 2 software. The goal of the software is to easily combine images with different exposers in an attempt to expand the dynamic range of the camera sensor to more closely match what the eye sees in real life.
This was my first attempt at using the software and I have a lot more learning to do. But, it is fun learning new things and it gets me thinking a bit more about the final image when I’m capturing the shot in the field.
