This path on the way to a waterfall in the botanical gardens near Betty’s Bay isn’t a place where I would have thought to take pictures before my introduction to tone mapping. The result is a combination of five RAW pictures from -2 to +2 EVs. I did not play with it a lot in Photomatix and it might even be the ‘natural’ preset. Further work in Photoshop produced this picture that I find fascinating although it might not be very popular. At first glance it is a completely abstract pattern of greens and brown, but on closer inspection the very realistic landscape emerge with great depth in the upper right corner and moss on the rocks.
