Lovely image. Feels so fresh, spring like.
Thank you. This is an HDR with the extremes turned way down. I’ve been experimenting with LR5 and using NIK HDR filters. It seems to work well. The sunset image from yesterday used the same method but with the options cranked way up.
It looks very ‘naturalistic’. I would have never guessed. Perhaps at the HDR session next week you can share with me the images used in the HDR composite and how the treatment aided what you wanted to achieve.
I’ll be glad to. I’ll see if John will have time to put them up for everyone to follow.
Hey! I’ve been on that road until you couldn’t go any further; it only seemed open to local traffic. Nice shot with colours as I remember them.
It is a road with many opportunities to photograph the California Live Oaks. Thank you for your complement.
Love the movement of the fences in this shot.
In cropping, the lower fence was considered secondary but in the end I decided to keep it. Cate, thanks for your complement.
I love the effect on this. I’ve never used LR, but have it on my computer. Someday I’ll learn it. I like the concept of “turning it down” so the photo looks a bit more “real.” But I do also like the heavier HDR stuff, like your previous shot of sunset.
Thank you. In the case of HDR, LR allows you to work on one image for spot corrections, cropping and reducing noise, increasing sharpness and other operations Then you synch all of those corrections and changes to the other images that were taken as a group. It is in NIK, Photoshop or other programs that do HDR where the images are blended together. It is in one of those programs, I use NIK when you can change the effect on the composite image. After the HDR related software does its job you can return the saved image, usually TIF, to LR to make corrections or modify the HDR image.
