    is this really not hdr? It looks like it. More power to you if you can make those highlights and shadows so perfect. Well done.

  • David Bowden

    David Bowden said (29 Oct 2008):

    Nope not HDR. It is however about 60 layers, masked and doged and burned with contrast changes individually. A very manual application of Ansels Zone approach to developing images.

  • Roxane Bay

    Roxane Bay gave props (28 Feb 2009):

    Remarkable shot. Great contrast! Is there a name to this technique? You mentioned "It is however about 60 layers, masked and dodged and burned with contrast changes individually. A very manual application of Ansels Zone approach to developing images." How could I learn this? Thank you for your time.
