Adding a high dynamic range effect to an image can give it a Pop! I can control the amount of the effect by duplicating the background adding the effect and then raising or lowering the opacity of the layer. I shot this for an oil company and felt the image needed a boost to make it jump out at you
The woods can be dark and trying to stop action with a slight blur can be challenging when you are shooting action. HDR helps the bike stand out. What do you think?
