Goofing around with Photomatix 2.5

Thursday, July 26, 2007

As I said in my earlier post, Photomatix 2.5 introduces a number of new controls and features. What I can say is that using version 2.5 will be quite a learning curve. Yes I am still testing and playing around with the features but I think I'm getting there.. Below are some of my so-called "test images" and am quite happy with it. What do you think :-)

This one is an old shot taken when I was at Damansara Specialist Hospital. My kid was having a slight jaundice and we decided that it's best for him to be left under that UV light machine. I've previously processed this shot in HDR but doesn't quite make it. Under version 2.5 it is way way better. I guess those new features are great!

Porch Top Garden

Now the below shot was taken when I was at Batu Caves. Bugger my legs were trembling when I reached the cave entrance at the top - total of 272 steps! I am a bit disappointed though because I decided not to bring my tripod along - it's bloody heavy! Most of the shots taken inside the cave was bad and unusable - lots of camera shakes (low light.. what do you expect hehe and my hands are not that sturdy enough to hold the camera for 1 seconds without a single vibration)

Looking out

Now this image is a single RAW HDR. I know there are people who want to try Dave Hill's style of photography and decided why not I try it myself. Heck, it's not even close compared to his hahaha .. Just a vain attempt to self satisfy oneself. Maybe with a bit more practice I might just get it hahaha (laughing at myself)

Look straight at the camera

Lastly, I am a FlickR addict. Period. And Yahoo just made my day by releasing Yahoo! Go. More POWER to FlickR please! Ohh this is a non HDR shot and I do check FlickR via 3G - quite a lot :-)

Addiction made sexy

Hmmm what's next for me to shoot? Any suggestions ladies and gentlemen? If you need a buddy on your photog outing, lemme know hehe... Maybe I can tag along and terrorize your day hahaha joking!
