In the Wicklow Mountains
An experiment in high dynamic range, the original colour file of this picture was revised as three separate images files, each of a different tonal range. The dark tones were lightened, the mid tones lightened just a little, and the lightest tones were darkened considerably, then the three separate files were recombined using Photomatix Pro. Afterwards there was some adjustment to the sharpness in Photoshop. This was my first step in a mono HDR image. Over the past few days further experiments in taking and combining sequences of exposures have been attempted………. and if you promise not to laugh, I might place them before your discerning gaze!
The title says it all. A photo taken in the Wicklow Mountains.
