Burning a Path to Chicago
This may be my favorite shot from our walk Saturday night. The sky was boring without a cloud in the sky. But when I was taking my HDR brackets I realized that the sky looked fantastic when underexposed by a couple of stops. This image is a combination of the HDR image and the 2 stop under bracket. I painted the HDR image in for the buildings and left the single image alone for the ice and sky. Pretty much everything that I learned to do in Photoshop for this shot, I learned from Tony Reynes. I have asked Tony to contribute to the site as our resident Photoshop expert. Meet Tony at www.outofchicago.com/introducing-tony-reynes.
