Nice use again of the fusion technique,It gives the impression of some fill light,I have found in landscapes it also gives realistic black and white images with extended range.

A strong portrait work from this photogenic couple while keeping the Golden Gate Bridge in the BG, Roger!
Good choice of B/W treatment to the picture and nice isolation of your models against the well blurred BG.
The exposure and light are well managed.
Another strong work from your side!
OlŠ Roger---i am still in process brain your notes about " fusion" it works very well , it is visble the diference...I didnīt see this kind of bg for some time...To be in Paris and to have Tour Eiffel...or being in S, Francisco and have the bridge in bg. I had forgrt it and it is plaesure to see it...goood b/Wchoice and you resolve very well the the original.
The couple look great and they suit the mood.

OK... I was going to ask if you used 5 frames with different exposure or just one made into 5 exposure. And then I saw again the description :).
By looking the original example, its hard to believe you can obtain such a final result. I love dealing with extreme light condition and I think with the help of this tool it would be fun.

A superb dual portrait using the iconic Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop. I like the slight upward pov. A charming couple. Well managed backlighting with wonderful shadow detail & good tonal range & light contrasts. Tfs!

I totally agree with you, a simple object can look beautiful with proper lighting. Actually, light makes the photograph. This is a great capture with excellent lighting. Good dof and good contrast. Very well done, tfs.

Just shooting a portrait is something just a shot but putting a background that identifies the situation is next so by looking to this I just went to the Golden Gate Bridge, your NOTE provide much information that is helpful, all I say just that it is superb, TFS.

Hi Roger, this is the sort of thing I meant with the ressurected theme. The only part of your shot where it is noticeable that the sun was in the wrong spot is the little patch next to the lower part of the mans arm on the right. The fusion and b&w gives it a really natural look. Fiona
