Interesting process. Would you mind posting the origional foto... I'm so curious as to how far you pushed the effect.

Great mood btw!

Well, this is the original shot SOOC...not even a touch of manipulation. As I said it was exposed at -2 stops to capture the mood of the morning...remembering that the camera's only ambition is to turn everything into a mid grey.

In cases like this where there is predominantly a limited range of tones you have to deliberately underexpose, or if it was a snow scene and you wanted the snow to appear white, then you would over expose. I may have overdone it a trifle, but the effect in the end was what I wanted.

As a matter of interest, the close-ups you commented on were possibly taken with an extension tube or two...I often use them as it saves carrying a macro lens if I want to keep the weight down on long walks.

@alchamy, great shots -- you did a great job capturing the animal's expressions.

Hey Drew, it looks like a serious amount of flare in the lens there... you must have been pointing almost into the sun.

Great shot tho!

I was pointing very closely to directly into the sun and didn't even have the lens hood on. I knew I'd get this high-key, blown out, flare look.

Not my style, normally. I thought it might be interesting and I think it turned out well. Thanks for your comment.

I agree, looks great.

I've got an overexposed shot of my little girl that I need to spend some time on for the same reason. I think it could be a really cool shot.

I plan to use my 70-200mm f4L IS tomorrow for a ballet recital. I thought I should check out how it does with the new 2x TC III.

We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.
