Morning Coffee – Daily Paper

An everyday ritual. In most cases the paper is read in the evening. The cup of coffee is then replaced with a glass of wine.

HDR shot composed of 5 images and processed in Photomatix and Photoshop. The goal was to produce an HDR shot that didn’t scream HDR. Looking at the finished image I think I could have produced it using one exposure, which means I’m probably not utilizing the HDR to its full potential. Steam added in Photoshop. As much as I’ve tried, I’ve never had any luck capturing steam.

Shot with 50mm compact macro lens. ISO100, f2.5, five exposures shot each with different exposure compensation. View Large.
