Here’s another “lost” shot from my trip to South Dakota in 2005. To recap, I’d been fooling with HDR sequences to try out with Photoshop CS2, but I was never happy with the results. I had always liked this particular image, but couldn’t get it “right” with HDR until I reprocessed it in HDR Efex Pro, using a modified version of the “Natural Landscape” settings I developed with Tony Sweet. Suddenly, all the magic that was there that chilly October morning in Custer State Park came back to me.
Specs: Nikon D2x with 17-55mm f/2.8 AFS G DX Nikkor lens, ISO 100 @f/16. 5-shot sequence.
