Location: Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico (aka Puerto Vallarta)
Photo Set: MexicoE
Shot: #035-39 HDR
Resolution: 4238 × 6393
Processing: 5 (16bit RAW) exposures with Double-HDR layers Extensively Post Processed
When I say Double or Triple HDR it means I took two or three variations of HDR processing and merged them later, so typically one tone mapped with tonal compression and another with detail enhancements or even a separate program or just different settings that bring out different aspects of the HDR image. (I think I’ll coin it “multi-HDR” processing.)
