This was 5-1 stop exposures starting at -1 stop on center exposure. During CS4 workflow I masked back specific areas of 3 of the exposures. Taken with 1D MkIII and TS-E 24mm Tilt-Shift.

'Cuz you do such a good job with them! Is the horizon a little off on this one? May be just an illusion caused by the other odd angles.

Wonderful Kevin!

When you say "masked back specific areas" what exactly do you mean by this? I assume you masked (removed) portions of that image. pardon my question but I am new to all this and really appreciate your help :)

I think it's an illusion Gary, at least hope so, I use a spirit level always and keep the bubble in the middle.

What I will do is to bring into the image one of the other exposures, apply a mask, either show all or hide all depending on what I want to show. If the mask is a hide all mask then I use a white brush to expose the areas I want to show in the working image. Example; the backs of the chairs were a tad darker than I wanted so by bringing in the +1 exposure and adding a hide all layer I could brush in the backs of the chairs and lighten them to what I wanted. If you want a lot of control over your brush lower the opacity. All these adjustments are small adjustments so as not to change the tonal effect of the working image.
