I was testing out my new camera one evening at the Lynchburg City Cemetery.
First I was was drawn to an arch that is on this path, back a few yards behind the camera point of view. From there it was just a progression of shooting what was in front of me and working the scene.
When it came to post processing the image kind of took on a life of its own and I pushed some limits that I don't usually push with an image.
I was shooting on a tripod, mostly because I was shooting a series of brackets to merge together later as an HDR. That's just about all I remember about the shooting part.
Once I put the image through the HDR process and cleaned everything up in Photoshop I did some dodging and burning to accent the things that I wanted to really stick out. This was one of the first images that I spent a good deal of time dodging and burning, I continue to be amazed at how much better the image is because of the simple work of darkening and lightening parts of the image.
