Extending photographic techniques

with 11 comments

I found some excellent tutorials on HDR (High Definition Range) photography and I used them on some of my favorite photos.  I’m reposting – I hope you can see the difference and that it’s pleasing.

  2. It’s a whole different look. It takes a couple of seconds to adjust then you wonder how you can live without it. Thank you.

  3. One and three are beautiful. The middle one has a lot of halos along the horizon and trees. Is there a way to clean it up or was their lighting causing it?

  4. The second image has a striking quality to it, almost bordering on surreal. I’ll have to look into this technique. I’ve just started experimenting with the High Pass Filter, which can add an interesting edge to pictures.

  5. I love the second one. Pure emotion. It would have been perfect for the cover of my buddy’s book, Gone til November, a crime mystery about a deputy sheriff in central Florida. Maybe the paperback. Anyway, I’ll email it to him. Where did you find the tutorials? I gots to know.

    • I’ve had the same thought with other photos – would make great book jacket for a murder mystery – or suspense novel. Thanks for the comment.

  6. The first image is outstanding. It has a magical, Disney quality about it. I’m ready to see the pirate ship arrive.
