I was driving over to Newport to get to the Castle Hill Lighthouse at Sunset but I was running late so I ended up with a picture of the Mount Hope Bridge. The first shot was the middle exposure of a three shot series (-2, 0, +2) that I had planned to use to make an HDR image. The second shot is the HDR image which I made with HDR effects Pro. Please post some comments. Which image do you like the regular shot or the HDR image.
The last shot is a far out HDR of Castle Hill Lighthouse. It was much too dark to get anything better.
I was driving down to Beaver Tail and spotted this yard covered with flowers and a cool looking shed. I had to shoot it from the road but its still pretty nice. I would have loved to go in and shoot it in more detail.
Here are a couple of shots of me at Black Point in Narragansett, RI. They also show a good tip, always use your tripod. In this case not only did they help me to make better images but it also allowed me to walk around on these very slippery rocks. All the green algae you see in the image below is especially slippery so use you tripod like a walking stick and try to avoid the green rocks.
Black Point is one of the locations I use for “Shoot with me Workshops”. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up your shoot today.
Happy New Year to all of my family, friends, co-workers, and customers. Hope to see you in 2011.
The image below is a high dynamic range photo that I made at Castle Hill Lighthouse in Newport, RI. This image is a combination of 3 images and developed with Photomatix tone compressor for a more realistic look.
Here’s how it would come out with tone mixer. A little more surreal.
So which do you prefer from these images or in your own HDR images?
