The Deck – Week 48


I am pretty much disappointed with this week’s photographs, I have one of my wife that I thought was a great shot and was very tempted to put as the photo for this week’s Deck entry, but she would never forgive me if I did, so I had to settle for this one.

I intentionally took multiple exposures most of this week because I intended to do some more HDR attempts, but this one didn’t come out as expected.  For some reason my alignment was all wrong and there’s quite a bit of haloing as a result.  I did intend a BW HDR, so this I used as much to my advantage as possible.

I did the HDR merging in Nik HDR Efex Pro, and also added a vignette to it there. The final touches were added in Lightroom using a BW POP preset I got from Eric Kim, who does really great Street Photography, I hope he doesn’t mind that I used it for something other that Street Photography  🙂

I rather liked the lone tree and it’s reflection, so that’s why this was my choice this week.

  1. It’s a beautiful photograph. Love the reflection:) but I’ve got to agree with you, the portrait of Maureen would have made an even better Choice:)
