HDR Before/After – Vitaleta

HDR Before/After – Vitaleta

Tags : 

 

I love the isolated places like this… the choice of the scene in peace to wait for the right moment to shoot. In those moments you think only at the spend of time without worrying about other things as often happens in cities with traffic cars and especially tourists 😀

I made this HDR with  five exposures with a gap of 1 (-2, -1, 0 + 1, +2). Then I merged the images with Photoshop CC with the function “Merge to HDR Pro”. I have to say that I was in doubt whether to use this function or flatten individual as I usually only using layer masks, but for this picture the HDR Pro function was very satisfactory so i kept this version. The rest of the interventions were all made using Camera Raw and masking the effect in the desired areas. I work particularly  in  lights and colors effects, some detail has been added on the buildings and on the turf, as a final touch, I created a small vignette to give more depth to the image.

Lake Bled taken from the jetty in the east side. I say it now, I replaced the original jetty in the image with this one you can see, the original one was not attractive at all, it was too short and flat. The rest of the landscape was pretty but it needed depth that I was able to give the picture thanks to the replacement of the dock. As you can see from the before after I have attached below other major edits were performed on colors and to the water. I made this HDR from three shots, I replaced the dock and worked with hue/saturation to bring him a shade similar to that of the rest of the image. For the rest I uniform all through the masks luminance and contrast.

HDR Before/After – The Descent

Tags : 

Sometimes after trying so many methods of editing HDR you have to surrender to the fact that for some images Photomatix remains without a doubt the best software to work a HDR.This photo is proof of what I say, I tried to work this in different ways, but Photomatix is definitely the software that made this picture in a better way. I took a series of exposures in Villammare, a small city near Sapri in Cilento, from a descent leading down to the beach where there are those rocks that are seen in the foreground. Edited the image in Photomatix as I said the rest has been a shift in color and detail enhancement with Photoshop using a selective removal of the noise.

HDR Before/After – The Beginnings

As I wrote in my previous post The Beginnings The house on the rocks of Villammare for me represents a starting point for the HDR, but this time than the first time i photographed this place, the technique used was different, so I tried the three exposures taken at sunset through the method of 32-bit HDR. The street running through the house on the rocks is a simple road that leads from the main one this place so it is not very busy with people in cars, I still had to wait about ten minutes that the sun is filtering through the clouds to get the ‘effect achieved.
