I know I said I was going to put up a more dramatic shot this evening, but I thought I'd post this one instead (and the more dramatic one tomorrow. It's much the same scene as yesterday's, but I've gone for a 'colder' feel to this one. Let me know how you think they compare. I think I prefer yesterday's, but I'm quite pleased with this one too.
Oh, and as quite a few of you commented on the masking for yesterday's shot: both yesterday's and today's are a combination of two TIFFs processed from the same RAW file, one at the normal exposure, one overexposed by a stop. The mask was used to seperate the original exposure (the sky and some aspects of the background) from the overexposed shot – the bucket and most of the foreground. I did think about doing both as HDRs, but decided to go with a more 'traditional' approach for these two.
