Well, that’s my excuse for not doing any HDR shots lately. Last week went out for a shoot with a friend, who besides being a “photo nut” also happens to ride Mountain Bikes. (These guys are loco)
Anyway, off we went to a local track, it was midweek so it was quiet, just what I wanted as I was trying out some “off Camera flash” using radio triggers to fire my speedlites (one a Canon and one Nikon) (Triggers were Pocket wizards II)

Pretty happy with the results and before anyone comments (if anyone at all) this ISN”T HDR, so why is it in here? Good question.
I’m thinking with external light(s) creating a sculpturing of light around an object, isn’t that what HDR does in a way? brings out detail in those shadows that would be lost.
A bit of burning and dodging and a touch of tonal contrast was all that was needed to get this finished result.
