Not the most popular bar in town! But then it doesn't have any bar staff.

This is a really nice and clean shot, Luc. Is this straight out of the Z6? To get this kind of look I would have to shoot HDR and then blend in Lightroom with Enfuse, which obviously takes quite a long time when you're shooting multiple frames on multiple properties. I am seeing some pretty amazing work from others using in-camera HDR from the Sony A-series, but... I really don't want to indulge Sony if I can help it.

Thanks Dallas, this image was processed from a Z6 Jpeg. These kind of images (interior with high dynamic range) are one of the reasons I wanted a full frame camera to supplement my other gear.

Nikon has perfected the Active D-lighting option, as I use Z6 Jpegs with minimal post processing the effect of the Active D-lighting (I use Low of Normal) is very welcome.

 

This is the sooc Jpeg

And here the before/after, you'll notice the minimal post processing

I'm in the process of trying Capture One. So far (after one hour of editing, without previous training or knowledge) I like it a lot. Even Layers are easy to work with (Dallas!).

 

I re-processed the Beer & Wine image from RAW with C1.

I might give it another try, Luc. Actually I have been looking at some Creative Live material from Adobe and I have planned to do a very special modern townhouse next week using my newfound techniques of shooting with flash and then compositing the different frames in Photoshop. I shot this property for an agent a couple of months ago and it’s quite special. I used HDR and the results while “ok” weren’t wonderful as it was midday. This particular place has a moving flat  roof that opens up so that the kitchen and dining area becomes completely open to the elements.

 

The owner asked me if she could use the images but obviously I can’t as I have given the agent an exclusive license, for those. So I suggested we reshoot the place at a better time of day and I will give her the full works at a really good price. She agreed and so I shall proceed to this job armed with my iPad Pro, Godox AD200 and a clear idea of how I want to shoot it. 😎

Hi Dallas, I don't like the Adobe subscription model and my old version of Lightroom 5 didn't support my Olympus E-M10II and Nikon Z6 RAW's. So I had to use cumbersome bypasses (modifying Exif data and using DNG converter) to process these RAW's with Lightroom. I want a RAW-converter which provides optimum RAW results for the three brands I shoot with (Nikon, Olympus and Fuji). Capture One is that software, it really outclasses Adobe. Next step is a new Mac Mini i7/32gb to replace my 2010 MacBook.

 

But I understand your reason for staying with Adobe, your processing especially the HDR part needs are more complex than mine I guess. All the best with the forthcoming reshoot!

      Images from Catherine Palace, Pushkin/Russia. 
       
      This palace was the summer residence of the Russian tsars. The interior was almost completely destroyed in WWII but is now beautifully reconstructed.
      Soviet archivists had managed to document a fair amount of the interior before the war, which proved of great importance in reconstructing the palace.

      Yesterday I attended the KLM 100 Experience, an event to celebrate the 100th birthday of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
      The event was nice, the behind the scenes opportunity was more interesting 😀
