- Description: This was a nearly impossible shot, and one that took a lot of patience, hard work, and planning to get. The light was very dim, and the dynamic range of this scene was brutal. To capture all the range of colors and tones, I had to shoot 3 separate exposures — one for the highlights, one for the mid-tones, and one for the shadows. I later combined them to form this finished image that best represents the entire scene. Even today's modern cameras cannot reach the levels of light sensitivity that our perfectly designed eyes can see! This is a hand-blended exposure used to capture the full dynamic range of the natural scene.
- Gear: Canon 6D, Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC, Manfrotto Tripod & Ball Head
