Moon Rise with Poplars

It is great to have the time to grab a few shots again.  This a view from our bedroom, March 27, 2013.  This picture is the result of three hand held 1-stop bracketed shots processed in Nik HDR Efex 2, with minor touch up and cropping in Photoshop CS6.

New to OnOne Perfect Suite 7 is Perfect B&W.  This picture was made the Albumen Print preset, after which I applied a sepia/blue split tone in Photoshop CS6.  I'm fascinated by the look of early photographic processes and it is nice to have tools that support exploring them easily.
