OK, I Guess it’s HDR Weekend

Check out more of my HDR photos on LA Times Framework

buildingsfountains1I found a few of my HDR (high dynamic range) images hiding on my laptop. The top photo from the Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach, CA is an example of a more natural HDR photograph using Photomatix and keeping the slidet at a lower level. The lower photo taken during one of my lunch break walk of the Bunker Hill California Plaza in downtown Los Angeles is more pedal to the medal HDR effect with the same software. I did give it an extra kick with the Topaz Labs’ Adjust 4 plug-in for Photoshop. Have a great weekend. :-) RL

CalicoCandleCoHDRHDR (high dynamic range) photos of the Calico Ghost Town on a recent return trip from Las Vegas. It’s just a couple miles off the 15 freeway between Baker and Barstow. The photographs were taken with a Canon 2ti camera. I used Photomatix to combine the three differently exposed images before processing in Photoshop CS4.

I used the Hipstamatic app with my iPhone and then use Topaz Labs Simplify to give it the painted effect along with Photoshop CS4.
