Not much I was able to do about it. I was parallel with the water, and there are boat houses in the way that left me with one view before the steps. Also, rocking the ultra wide I wanted to get the entire bridge, and only being about 10 feet away from it (basically under it)
Even after finishing it, I am actually happy with the depth of black being an HDR. Often I find a hue or a glow on the edges that make it look overdone.
I guess I could have popped it into Dxo viewpoint and tried to make it longer and cut the edges. just hate to jack with the perspective
