A more formal approach here for the Deputy Mayor Cllr. Eileen Leask and her husband Peter.
I placed them nearer to the window on the Beach Road side of the Town Hall in South Shields, the blinds softened the light just a little as I framed them in the entrance to the Mayor's Parlour.
Again the HDR tone mapping was done in Photomatix, then I masked the pair of them back in from the 0EV exposure, finally a little softening with the Lucis Arts plug-in. The three processes although lengthy gave me a result that I'm very pleased with.
