28. Sunset

Couldn’t upload/make any photograph from last few days as I felt sick. Here is a collection of HDRs I made of the lake at sunset. See my previous posts on HDRs for more information   HDR1  HDR2 HDR3

11. HDR

Aim: To experiment with the technique of HDR (High Dynamic Range)

Idea: To capture sunset as the sky is very dynamic at that time.

Shot in the daylight after a long time. I noticed a few points about HDR shooting while preparing for the shoot.

1. As it is to capture a wide spectrum of tones, you must have that much amount of detail in the scene

2. Use tripod as a slight change in position can produce ghost type effects while creating HDR

3. You can use the Photoshop plugin- HDR Pro or the software designed for HDR only- Photomatrix Pro

This is the trial HDR. I found this boat quite interesting to use as a foreground. As the sun is high in the sky there is not much gradation of tones there. So, I decided to wait till sunset.

The above shot was looking quite static. I changed the camera position to give the boat a more dynamic feel. I fixed my tripod at this position.

This is the final HDR image I created. There are few things I like about it and others which can be improved. Such as:

1. I like the details of the texture in the boat.

2.  The sky, both colors and details could have been better.

3. The camera position could have been changed slightly to give a more 3D dynamic view of  boat.

Couldn’t resist to re-edit the image. Worked on the sky, made the reds less luminant, removed the blue cast over mountains/hills and darken the greyish shades just above the hills.

How do you like the new version? What more you suggest to improve?
