Vista House at Crown Point

Posted by peter | Posted in HDR, Landscape | Posted on 25-06-2010

This picture was shot on a tripod with five exposures (-4..-2..0..+2..+4EV). I used Photomatix to create the HDR with tone mapping and detail enhanced. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. 1 layer mask to increase color and contrast in the sky. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.

A closer up shot of Vista House. There were lots of people at Vista House. Some, like myself, were waiting for sunset. Presented in full HDR!

Scenic Stream

Posted by peter | Posted in HDR, Nature Photos | Posted on 25-06-2010

This scenic stream flows through the town of Hermann, next to one of the larger wineries. Considering one of the trees is standing in water, it’s obvious the stream isn’t usually this high. This is HDR processed.
