Water Glass, Duffs Restaurant

Al fresco dining with family and friends is my favorite way to take a meal.  This picture was taken at the end of one of those experiences with a Nikon AF-S 50mm f/1.4 wide open.  This lens has a buttery smooth bokeh that I seldom use to advantage.  Nik HDR Efex applied with a light touch to a single image can help pull out detail and boost contrast.

Monochrome conversion and sepria/blue split tone thanks to Nik Silver Efex Pro.
