The water was glassy smooth in the Cache River near Heron Pond yesterday. Something about the place seems frozen in time, which I guess is the point of a nature preservation area. This picture is the result of processing five brackets in Nik HDR Efex, using the Landscape - Fine Detail preset as a starting point, with further processing in Photoshop CS5, Nik Vivenza and a final 11x14 crop in Lightroom 3.
Monochrome generated from the HDR image in Nik Silver Efex Pro using a custom preset I made to get that purple cast you got with Rapid Selenium Toner on Kodabromide paper.
