An empty lonely park bench on a chilly night in Sefton Park.
Although it doesn’t look like it I did use HDR here. 7 exposures bracketed, merged and then adjusted in Lightroom. Why use HDR if it doesn’t look like it needed it? Well I didn’t really know what the end result was going to be so I put everything into one shot and had a play. The detail was there in the sky, the ground, etc. Lots of nice detail in the shadows without any noise and retention of detail in the highlights. I probably could have just used a ND filter but I didn’t have one with me so HDR to the rescue. I really am liking doing the cleaner more non-HDR looking HDR than my older shouty HDR style.I should probably update the HDR tutorial with some new tips one day.
