This is a hidden little spot that I discovered, quite by accident, while walking around on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. I had been shooting there and just having a good time. After a bit I began to meander, which I like to do while holding a camera, and ended up in this spot, which was tucked in nicely among a few buildings.
I took this as an HDR, quite a while back, and had processed it with Photomatix. However, I was never sold on the result so it just sat in my library. Fast forward to now and Nik Software’s HDR Efex Pro has come along - and it’s great! I am sold! I really love the product, as well as the other ones that come in their Complete Collection. Anyways, I went back and processed this with HDR Efex Pro and it just did such a better job with the photo.
If you are interested, I wrote up a little review/tutorial on my blog about HDR Efex Pro, which you can read about here:
