Yesterday morning I decided to shoot an overview of the Ohio River Bridges Project Downtown Span foundation progress. I wanted to show the entire river crossing foundation work that has been accomplished so far. I went up on the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge to get far enough upriver to capture the view from shore to shore where the bridge will cross the Ohio River. I knew I wanted a panorama so I shot with the final cropping in mind.

I used a three frame bracket set of +2, 0 and -2 EV exposures that I merged in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 and finished in Aperture 3. Currently most of my HDR work is being sent back to Aperture after very minimal tone mapping in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2 using the Balanced preset as my starting point and then adjusting exposure, contrast, highlights and shadows in Aperture 3. I also adjust the individual color channels and sharpen in Aperture 3 as well as cropping the image to the final size proportions.
