This is an HDR image created from a single RAW file. The pepper was then layered with a non-enhanced version of the backdrop. I’ve written up more details about how the photo was created.
Technical Data: Canon Rebel XTi; Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM; f/2.8 at 1/13; ISO 200; Photomatix, Photoshop Elements.
