Fountain With Love

This is just too romantic to not share. If you have a special someone, take um out on a date and give them a squeeze! :)

Processing: This type of photo is extremely difficult to take. To expose correctly for the fountain you need to bracket to capture all the light. For this photo I used a combination of the -3 and +2 exposure using the LRenfuse plug-in in LR4. I'm not exactly sure what the plug-in does but my guess is that it takes the luminance values from each and combines them. Because the fountain's water moves as you bracket, using more then two exposures from the same image creates a lot of ghosting. So to get a clear combination I used the brightest and darkest of the two images only. -3 for the luminance of the fountain, and the +2 for the luminance of everything else. Basic raw processing after LRenfuse in LR4
