Spring in the Forest

April 22, 2020

The way I shot and processed this image drives home the point I made PhotoPXL article “Noise, ISO and Dynamic Range Explained.”  The exposure was set to get the starburst effect (ISO = 100, 1/320s, f = 24 mm at f/22).  The rest of the image was underexposed – to the point that the raw preview appeared nearly black for much of the image.  The information is still there – it is just lost in the shadows, which I called the push-DR in the article.  I first used an aggressive curve to get the starburst the way I wanted it.  80% of the rest of the image was still too dark, which I fixed with an exposure push layer with a radial mask.  Most of the image was pushed about 4 stops.  There is no noise reduction.
