Theme: Digital Blending

Friday, January 04, 2008

Just wanted to try out digital blending instead of the normal HDR processing in Photomatix. Seems like whenever I did HDR processing on water flows with slow shutter, the results were not satisfactory. So this is digital blending done in Photoshop by blending 3 exposures. Hope you like it as much as I do :-)

Refreshed!

Flows

To those who would like to try out digital blending, I would recommend http://www.thelightsrightstudio.com/digital-darkroom.htm. They have pretty neat tutorials and action scripts. Off course I would add some of extra processing on my pictures but the blending tutorial is the base on what I've done.

You know I love the blending work as I've already stated it on flickr but I'll say it here as well, this is nice work. Did you use a ND filter on these shots as well or was the light low enough for you to keep the shutter speed down?

Hi vedd, hi Scott.

The colours really pop - the green and gold, red on the rocks etc. And it's crisp (minus the water, of course ;). Nicely done. I like it a lot.
