Originally I had 3 different exposed shots taken of this to eventually merge into a HDR. Unfortunately, when I got home I found that I must have had some dust on my Wide Angle lens and that the auto focus of the camera had used the dust as its point of reference! Therefore the real subject was out of focus. This was originally the over exposed shot [-1 EV] which for some reason did not show up the dust and, was in focus. Thanks to shooting in RAW format and also Photoshop Elements, I was able to adjust the exposure post processing and ended up with this great shot! RAW format gives so much more opportunity to correct any small problems.
