Shadow Recovery


This was posted from Marc Williams in the ND-thread and I copied it additional here:

A note to all ND users. Today I posted a few snapshots taken in fairly contrasty conditions.
It demonstrates the wonderful dynamic range of the ND.

However, some of the shots were accomplished using a few 3rd party designed PhotoShop actions I've found VERY valuable for digital cameras, and even more important for the ND. So. I thought it important to share them with you.

Another one is called "Chroma Noise Reducer" which also is very valuable when used with the ND files.

There are more, but this is enough for now.
