Interesting topic this week for the Photo Challenge. It made me think of grave stone markers, so I went back to work on a photo that I took a few months ago:
This edited version is an HDR photo. I was interested in creating an HDR version because I thought that the detail of the stone would match the bokeh of the background in an interesting way. The edit is a slight and subtle one. Here is the original, middle exposure of the three images that I combined:
I think that the HDR treatment gave the grave marker the bit of pop that it need to separate from the background. What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment below.
I love looking at grave stone markers, especially weather-worn ones, monuments to those who are gone but not forgotten.
