Pity you're NOT a Plus member. I would have love to seen the 0 Value Exposure of this scene to see the Extreme Contrast between the HDR and Non HDR. Your images are always a thing of Beauty. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Jorge, @jorgehdrbrazil the shadows were fairly deep in this one but luckily not much noise.

@inkslinger_ii thanks much! I’m starting to go to the archives and rework some of these older shots with a better skill set.

@digicam thanks Ed, I have to look at that. I haven’t had much of a chance to get out much so have been just reworking older images that could be improved. On this one, I used Topaz Ai to upconvert x4 then resize to native. The detail that’s gained was like going to a 40 mp from a 16mp. I did that after first merging all the bracketed images in Photomatix Pro, creating four duplicates and then hand tonemapping using layers and soft brushes. Some of this Ai stuff is amazing.
