Like my previous two entries, this is a partial HDR; i.e. the foreground was created with FDRTools while the sky was dropped in from the original exposure. Unlike the previous two though, this one was constructed from a single RAW file rather than a bracketed sequence. The net result is that there's more noise in this one (though it's not especially obvious at this resolution) so a bracketed sequence would have produced a technically better image. In this case though it just wasn't possible as the plastic basket was vibrating in the wind; i.e. there would have been too much movement between the different frames to produce an HDR from multiple exposures.
