Thanks for the responses. The background is a 7 image HDR with some processing in Photoshop, and Ciera was shot in the studio and added into the background afterward.

Marc, i love the shot....

Just enough PP!

The optical illuition of the court makes me feel a bit queezy though! What focal length did you shoot the background with? Seems a little warped in my brain, but again its not a negative remark...

It pops out at you thats good! :-)


Oh...Hello :)

Thanks. The BG was shot with my 16-35mm at about 16mm.

Great HDR work and PP. Only thing if I were to nitpick is that the color on her nose seems off, but then again it might just be a compression issue.
