Dark Down Below

Stairway to nowhere…looks kind of eerie down there.  HDR of an outdoor staircase in Snohomish, WA.  One of many random(ish) shots I took while my wife was enjoying a massage in town.  In keeping with my view that many HDR guys (and gals) go too far and bring out too much detail in the shadows, I tried to process just enough to give a sense of what’s down there without bringing it out completely.

  3. Perhaps a tad bit darker would have been better? Just a thought, love that this HDR isn’t over-processed as so many others do.

    • Yeah, maybe darker would be better. I only really thought about the bottom of the stairs — just light enough to see “something”. I could go darker all around and fade to black in the middle…probably lots of options here. Thanks for the input!
