Iwatateo Shrine, Fujino
Copyright ©2005, Norm Havens ♥ ¤ $
An ancient shrine in my town. Records naming the shrine date from the 10th century, although it's undoubtedly been in existence in some form for much longer. Fujino's entire area was settled by neolithic hunter-gatherers (Jomon people) for thousands of years (pottery shards are regularly uncovered by farmers).
This shot is my first raw conversion attempt, using RSE. I have to admit I'm kind of amazed at what can be done with the raw data. Due to the wide dynamic range involved, I underexposed by several steps, enough to save the sky and roof edge highlights, then opened up the shadows with RSE.
