Ozzie outback walk at Dusk

5 shot HDR, 1 stop between shots, processed in Photomatix Pro then Nik Silver efex Pro 2. The dynamic range was too great from the almost dark interior to the bright sun rays for 1 exposure. 

1/250th of a second @ f-11, ISO 800. Nikon 28-300mm lens @ 48mm, Nikon D800e and a tripod of course!

I wanted to catch the stem of the back pear which was why I placed it near the bottom.

Larry, love the journey from bottom left to top right.

The contrast between the natural vegetation, and man-made structures.

Kahsia it would be interesting to see how this image looks cropped to a square format. You did a great job on this one. The light is just right, giving it a really dramatic look.

Larry, the composition of your image makes me feel like I am right there walking on the boardwalk. Very nice.
Comment by Ann Holt on November 13, 2016 at 9:05am
Avril, yes I agree. The forest scene for instance didn't really benefit from Nik, so in the end I just used photoshop B&W conversion and contrast boost slider. A good result in Nik really depends on the individual photos, but it is fun to try.
Comment by Avril Kirby on November 13, 2016 at 8:43am

Ann--Nik is great to explore for b&ws, isn't it? And yet some I've tried maybe haven't had enough variance to work well. You need a photo like this to really appreciate what it can do.

Comment by Avril Kirby on November 13, 2016 at 8:37am

Kahsia-- I like the pears being near the bottom. Seems to give them weight and substance, and as Simon says, beautifully and subtly lit.

Larry--The railing stitches the two halves together with the white in the black and vice versa. Leads my eye out of the picture, makes me think of journeys that did not go exactly as planned, despite being black and white.

Boardwalk at Crofton

Comment by Simon Henson on November 13, 2016 at 7:01am

Beautifully lit.

Was it your intention to have the composition low down approaching the bottom frame?
