Bro­ken dream

Digital SLR Photography - - Expert Critique - by Ar­naud Bal­lay

Nikon D610 with AF- S 24- 120mm f/ 4 VR lens. Ex­po­sure: Ex­po­sures of two, ten and 45 sec­onds at f/ 22 ( ISO 400). What we think: Ar­naud's com­po­si­tion is spot on – the bro­ken walk­way is in­ter­est­ing, and leads the viewer through the frame, con­verg­ing on the sun whilst con­trast­ing with the blurred wa­ter. A nice bal­ance of two- thirds fore­ground to one- third sky works well too, as does the ver­ti­cal crop. There is, how­ever, some loss of sharp­ness due to ghost­ing be­tween brack­eted ex­po­sures. Ar­naud tells us that he used the LR En­fuse plug- in to cre­ate the HDR, and this isn't the first time we've heard of ghost­ing is­sues with this par­tic­u­lar soft­ware. Why it works 1) Great com­po­si­tion 2) HDR han­dled well, bar the slight ghost­ing 3) In­ter­est­ing walk­way works as lead- in line
