Challenge: Things That Go Together II (Expert Editing)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Eastham, Cape Cod, MA
Date: Dec 17, 2011
Aperture: f/8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/500
Date Uploaded: Dec 20, 2011

This is a 3-exposure, hand-held HDRI image, created with Nik's HDR Efex Pro. A little Nik Viveza to tune it up in CS 5, and that's it.

I had wondered if people would think the figure was added, but it's not. I had worried this would be seen as a shoehorn, but it wasn't.

It was a wonderful scene on a glorious morning; stuff like this is why I moved to Cape Cod.

One of the best HDR pics. Wonderful job. But we have to remember that you have a special relationship with the clouds.

Beautiful landscape photography. The person in the frame lends scale. It's a glorious sky, well processed and natural. One of my top picks for this challenge... because it's excellent photography.

Beautiful sky. The person's jacket is quite eye-grabbing though, I think I'd have desaturated the orange/red coat or waited for them to leave; this image is pretty enough with the title without a person in there.

With a double horizon to separate them and the awed viewer reminds me of the Ashcan school (and some Bear flavor)

Certainly do go together, DMC, nice placement of model in red to add to the overall balance. Without it...the shot is lost.
