Nice, tight crop.

thanks, though it isn't cropped at all. just shot wide and close.

If ever a shot cried out for HDR this would be one.

why is that? none of the values are blown out even the slightest bit. i think the representation of the sun-drenched scene is strikingly faithful, which is how i generally prefer things. (that is, i prefer not to add external or contrived drama, over what is there in the scene itself, to the extent practical.)

btw, it is always hard to tell whether we are viewing similar representations of a picture through the web. if it looks to you like there's lost detail in that shot, i suggest you try viewing it on the only global reference standard screen we have available--an ipad, for better or worse. feel free to use one in a store if you don't have your own handy. be sure to view it with the brightness turned either all the way or most of the way up. otherwise, even with calibrated computer screens (mine is, of course), we end up comparing apples to oranges and talking past each other.

i appreciate your taking time to comment--
