Did you use a graduated reduced density filter on the camera? Or, did you take several exposures and put them together in Photoshop as if you were using a GRD filter?

Beautiful capture of the lighting, tonality and details.

Hi Susan - I blended three exposures in Photoshop to create this image. I often use graduated ND filters, but when shooting directly into the sun the dynamic range is often still too great to contain with filters. Also, adding filters in front of the lens while shooting into the sun can also increase flare, something I didn't want in this image. :-) #8699010
