pitchers tuck by buddy don: furst attempts at hdr


ever since i cummenced to understandin that hdr stuff thanks to fletch talkin bout his larnin on the subjeck, i bin trine to git sum good eggsamples of it. heres my furst efferts, witch thar all a'usin photoshop to make em hdr, witch fletch menchuns photomatix as bein better n lackly tiz, only it costs bout a hunnert bucks n i dun alreddy have photoshop.

part of the problem is ye gut to have a subjeck that aint movin n that purty rare. even so, heres three shots of the waterfrunt on a day we wuz blessd by one of the mos beeyootifull clouds ever i seen:







them furst three above wuz all dun usin auto-bracketin with the aperture set n the shutter speed changin. each hdr cums from three camra raws.

after i figgerd out that auto-braketin aint the best method, i tried usin manual settins, settin the aperture n takin a series of shots whar i changed the shutter speed frum lowest that wood wurk to highest (based on whut the camra wuz a'tellin me). heres a cuple of them i tuck up in fort tryon park ...

this furstn aint the mos innerestin shot, but it has the mix of lite that lets ye test yer hdr, witch its good fer makin it so everthang in the pitcher seems to have a nuff lite, doin fer the pitchers whut the eye duz on its own ... that the george washington bridge in the distunts ...


heres a lil purtier shot, witch twuz hard to find shots whar thay wudnt lots of movement ...

Hey bd, I have never had any problem with loading your photos before but the ones on this morning's post will not load in Firefox. Just might be something wrong with my settings. Not sure.

Ansel Adams would be proud, the depth of field is crazy good with hdr.

Thank you for sharing!!

Excellent shots! I knocked Photoshop because it seemed much slower to process and a little more difficult to work with, but it does a fine job too. Keep it up.
