Finally had a moment to assemble the series of this wharf scene using Photomatix software. I loved the colors and the sky that morning, while it never got the color we wanted, was still the type that I knew I could bring out with this application. But I still wanted a real look, and just used the HDR process to bring out all the tonalites in this scene that were really there. The light came from behind and to the right of me, and the building was getting a nice glow even without the color I thought would happen. But with such a red color already there, it didn’t need more warmth, really!
Don’t forget about ICELAND August 22-28, 2010. There is still room and I’d sure love to have you join me on this adventure workshop. It’s a chance to hang out with enthusiastic outdoor photographers and capture the spirit of Iceland in your viewfinder with me by your side.
Check out my schedule for 2011 – I’ll begin taking reservations for all domestic mentor series tours beginning July 10th.
Oh my gosh, Bill – you remember that photo??? Amazing. I remember it was published in either an on-line or in-print magazine article I did, I think. I can remember the photo but now how/where it was published. That is definitely going back in years, and thanks for the memories! And for sharing your comments here. I guess you could say I’ve come a long way both as an entrepreneur and physically, now living in CA!!
Beautiful photo Brenda. I was stationed at NAS Whidbey back in the sixties and long to go back for a visit. One of my favorite photographs by you was of a boat on a very foggy morning in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. The photo definitely made an impression for me to remember it after all of these years. Glad to see that you are doing well.
Fantastic capture Ms. Brenda. Love, love, love this one!
Super image Brenda. Your post work is fab here. I would have liked to seen that scene! Really nice.
Thanks, Bob! I’m getting better at seeing what sort of conditions of sky can work for HDR, too – I don’t want the total surreal look of HDR in most of my pictures, so I was glad to get this one ‘right.’
Indeed….spectacular color! Makes me want to check out that software. Although I have no doubt the original shot was equally stunning, given your amazing talent.
Makes me want to just “be there”.
The original image in the field had the color that was there, but on an overcast day sometimes it’s not as evident. And the processing brings out all the subtle tonalities in a picture and the colors, too.
Brenda, The colors in this photo are spectacular!
You have the most amazing eye!
would make a good painting! maybe if you give me the rights to do so!
Thanks, Sharon! As my artistically talented sister you are welcome to the ‘rights’ to paint this scene if you want. Just letl me know off line and i’ll send you an image file.
