Artist's Description

HDR is supposed to be used to render a scene closer to how one’s eye has perceived it. However, with Photomatrix Pro as popular as it is, HDR has turned rather largely into another “special effects trick.”

This scene, Taughannock Falls in the Finger Lakes region of New York (USA) in the summer of 2010, was heavily riddled with shadows and highlights, making it difficult to find one single exposure that worked. But I didn’t want this image to be full of hyper-realistic colors. So instead I performed an HDR-like process, combining various exposures manually using layers in Photoshop.

This project was largely experimental and was my first attempt at doing anything like this.
