Depth of field is so good. Details jump out. Perfect.

Behind The Lens

Location
This one was shoot at Cornwall Park, Auckland, New Zealand
Time
Late afternoon, just before sunset.
Lighting
It was a fairly high-contrast scene, with the sun nearing sunset and the foreground in complete shadow.I elected to shoot for HDR processing.
Equipment
Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 12-24mm.
Inspiration
I was fascinated by the entangled roots on this old lone tree sat on top a small hill.
Editing
This is an HDR image processed with the SNS-HDR plugin for Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I travel light. Too much gear is a liability when traversing rough terrain, climbing fences, wading through streams and clambering through bush and forests etc.
Feedback
As this shot in low light, and in a fairly high-contrast situation I elected to shoot three bracket exposures with the intention of merging to HDR. That of course means using a tripod!
