This image is an attempt to re-create a post I recently saw by Jerry Lodriguss. The central image is a combination of four exposures that were adjusted in Photoshop using the apply image methodology described by Fred Espenak and then combined using the adobe HDR Pro plugin. Diamond ring photos are straight exposures captured during the eclipse and adjusted slightly in lightroom
