Westfield N.Y barn with rolled bales of hay

 

This image was taken at 135mm from about 1/4 to 1/3 of mile away over a vineyard which you can just see at the bottom of the frame. There were other houses and farm building on both sides, so the barn got placed in the middle of the scene. Some processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and HDR efex to give it an aged, grainy look.

The truck I found parked in a parking lot at the Chautauqua Mall. The truck image was taken with a Canon G12 point and shoot camera, it was all I had with me. The truck was cut out of its background using the pen tool in PS5, I also cleaned up the front fender and the door of the truck to reduce the reflection in both. The side and rear windows were also cut out to show the background. The background was burned in or darkened were the window are to indicate the tint of the windows.

 





Doorway – Presbyterian Church – Westfield N.Y.

Straight out of camera, great looking doorway. Shot with a low angle camera position and a wide angle (17mm) lens causing some of the converging lines.

I leveled out some of the horizontal  lines to square up the image.  Process  the 3 images as a HDR, the scene really didn’t need a 3 frame HDR to get the detail in the shadow because the doorway was in shadow and an over cast day. I used the 3 images just to see what results I would get.

A little under exposed perhaps but brightening it up would cause the sky to lose all detail.

This image was developed in Lightroom 3. We have a more interesting image, not as flat, more contrast, more pop in the colors, more detail in the sky, and just more interesting to look at.

This image is a 3 frame HDR. Starting with a normal exposure, +1stop and a -2stop  to get more blue in the sky. The image also received some adjustment brush work in Lightroom 3 to light up the flowers, the building and the fence structure along with the bench.

 

Which one do you like better and why? Please leave comments.

A small group of images taken at Patterson Library in Westfield N.Y. All of these images are taken as HDR using a 3 stop bracket to give me the files I needed to produce these results. The last image is actually made up of a normally exposed file, a +1 stop file and a -2 stop file to give me the blue in the sky. After processing in the HDR software I took them into PS5 to correct the converging lines that resulted from the low angles and the 18mm lens I was using to get the perspective I was looking for and the results you see here. The camera was tripod mounted with a cable release.

Westfield, New York

These two images were taken on Aug 23rd in Westfield New York. They are taken from Hardscrabble Rd over looking Noble Winery and Lake Erie. The smaller image is a 3 frame bracket and HDR conversion. The panorama is made up of a total of 24 images. 8 camera positions to make up the pano with 3 frame bracket at each camera position making a total of 24 frames. Each group of 3 frames were taken into HDR efex Pro and after I added the same settings to each group the 8 resulting images were taken into PS5 to do the pano stitching. The final pano once flattened was almost 500 megs in size.

Single image (actually the -1 stop) processed in Lightroom3. I tried to bring back the detail in the sky and didn’t have a lot of luck. The reason I used the -1stop was because it had the best overall exposure.
