Going back in time to the summer. This is a narrow countrylane in Somerset in England. I was motivated to take a photo because of the telegraph poles running alongside the road. Sometimes a view just says ‘photograph me’ even though I was cycling along countrylanes all day, and then a certain something clicks in the brain.
This is another of those ‘pseudo’ HDR processed images in HDR Efex pro. To be honest, the tone compression (tone mapping) part of the software – which is the HDR bit – is just a part of the sofware’s function. I also warmed the image up with the temparature slider, applied some of the ‘structure’ effect as well as added a vignette….
The software allows the clouds to appear darker than when I took the photo, but it was the clouds that were important to the composition too. Had it been a bright sunny day, I don’t think I would have been so inspired to take the photo.
