Challenge: HDR V (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix X100S
Location: Kinderdijk
Date: Aug 14, 2014
Aperture: 16.0
ISO: 200
Date Uploaded: Aug 13, 2014

Was roaming around the area taking a mixture of long exposures & HDR shots and in swapping between the various settings for both had this happy accident.

I used the in-built 3 stop ND + external 10 stop screw-on but forgot that I still had a 3 bracket turned on so it took the middle & the over ok but couldn't do the under as I was already on 30 sec plus f16. However, there was still a difference between the 2 as the sun kept going in & out of the clouds.

Processed the 3 in HDR EFX Pro 2 then again in Color EFX Pro 4 to bring down the sky and bring out some detail. Back in LR adjusted angle, crop & clarity.

Being a Dutchman, I've never been there. Really must go there once. I like the smoothness of the water, the sky is beautiful, but I find the top right corner a bit distracting.

Long exposure. Good subjects. I might have tried ghost reduction, but I suspect the wind was moving stuff a lot. Maybe you did attempt ghost reduction. The blurred vegetation is a distraction. The long exposure probably required an ND filter to smooth out the water.

WOW... and I mean WOW... Have only one little critique, I feel the brush in the upper right distracts from this amazing shot.

Interesting softness in the sky. I can understand the softness in the weeds, but the sky is odd.
