Location: Scottsdale, AZ
Another test photo, alas. Because I refuse to play any HDR games, I had to reduce the exposure by several stops to keep the spotlights over the garage door from completely blowing-out, which then dropped the rest of the scene well down into the shadows.
Accordingly, I then had to use every post-processing trick I know to recover what details I did. And, truth be told, I may have pushed things a bit too far ... then again, maybe not. I would need to make a print to know for sure, but I'm not sure I like this photo enough to spend a few dollars on paper and ink...
