    Great work. Looks like the sort of shot with challenging exposure, but you really made it work.

    I bet the client is happy.

    so, does this mean the couple was shot with something else and composited in?

    Wow, that's some marriage of techniques. :smile:

    That is a beautiful picture; and as commented by Pelao, extremely hard to meter correctly.
    I really like what you've done, the tonal range of HDR without the dizziness!

    - Curious though - how did you do it?
  6. There is no HDR here. The couple was shot with Canon 40D on a sunny day under a shady place. The garden was shot at an overcast day with Lumix G1.

    I just close cut and paste. I use the eraser to fine tune the edges. I am no PS mask guru. But I know my lighting well. On purpose I softened the focus on the couple. To make it feel more real. DOF play...

    As a photographer I come from a film & darkroom era, with an art director background. Today's digital world offers me tones oppotunities to play with my imagination.

    Clients love it.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for explaining Hera,
    I'd say your PS skills are pretty tight. It really works.
