Tumacacori Doorway 84226

Tumacácori National Historical Park

The extended dynamic range of this shot of an extremely high contrast scene was processed from
only one file, so therefore it has very high noise levels in the shadows. If I'd known I was
going to like this image so much, I'd have taken 2 or 3 shots, one each for highlight, midrange,
and shadow detail and combined them. I might yet go back and reshoot it.

Photographed in the Sonoran Desert at the Tumacácori Mission ruins, Tumacácori, Arizona USA.
