quoth the raven…

This is a HDR photograph tonemapped in Photomatix.
I used one single cr2 file.
After tonemapping the file was imported into Adobe LightRoom and exported as monochrome with a different file name. I then re-imported it, decreased temperature and set a cold split toning to achieve the desired mood.

Hope you enjoy it.:)

    Beacoup detail … fantastic light effects. Were it not for the treatment this photo might be blah, but as is, detail and lighting transfix my eye.
