Protea #4, HDR

The series of HDR tests continues with another protea specimen.  I'm starting to get the hang of the HDR workflow, but the number of steps and something I can only explain as the "butterfly effect" make it a challenge to have consistent colors and tone maps.  

This is a slightly different sepia/blue split tone generated in Nik Silver Efex Pro.  It saves a couple of workflow steps, but it doesn't have as much depth as the Lightroom 3.

Lens: AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8 D
Exposure: ISO 200, f/22 @ 3s, tripod, RAW
Lighting: Calumet Quattro Dish and Flashpoint small bank fluorescent lights

Processing: Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5 HDR Pro and Nik Silver Efex Pro
