This photo is from St. Emilion, a famous wine growing region just outside of Bordeaux in France. I loved the way the sun was shining through the tree and the great texture in the church tower and the sky. This shot has so much dynamic range that the camera couldn’t capture it all so the highlights are blown out and the tower was deep in shadow. I fixed it as much as possible but the sky still wasn’t working for me – black and white to the rescue!
