Walking through these gardens near to sunset, it was difficult not to notice the beautiful light spreading across the well-manicured lawns and trees. I decided to set up near this tree, so that it would provide a frame for the ground, with the branches also leading straight to the setting sun.
I made the slightly unusual decision for me to shoot five exposures to create this HDR, and I’m glad I did. I think the end result is much stronger than would have been achieved with just the standard three exposures covering four stops of light. The detail in the grass and tree trunk in particular seem to have come out very well. I have some similar shots taken on the same evening as this, but from different viewpoints, that I will be showing over the next few days, so keep watching!
