Well, the Brooklyn Bridge that is. I know that I said yesterday that I was going to be working on some shots from a little more recent (these are from December 2010) but I happened to see these unprocessed brackets while I was doing a little bit of housekeeping in Lightroom and couldn’t help but process them. I debated whether or not to post all of them, but I decided that they are all just different enough to make for an interesting post. The one above is my favorite, where I am actually standing in between the cables near the middle of the bridge. That image will also be used as an example in the new HDR: Before and After series that I am doing. But more to come on that a little later!
For this one I wasn’t sure if I liked the B&W or the color better. I’ll leave that up to you to decide. The one thing that I am not thrilled about with this shot is that, even though it was shot at f16 to capture the sunflares, it was such a cloudy/hazy day that the sun just looks like a big blob of light. That kind of made me lean towards the B&W.
Similar to the one about, just in portrait orientation instead of landscape.
Finally, I wanted one with some cars going across the bridge as well. I masked in one cars and left a ghost car a little farther back, just for kicks.
As mentioned earlier, I will be launching a new section on my blog, HDR: Before and After. There will two different main features of this section. One will be from original exposure to HDR and one will be from HDR pre to post process, with some commentary around each. I’ve always been fascinated by before and after pictures of anything (not sure why, might be kind of weird) and I finally got a plugin that I like to actually work. So stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by today folks, see you all tomorrow.
