HDR OF local endangered bridge!

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by bestgolfer, Aug 26, 2008.

  1. Hi all, this HDR shows the dynamic range possible in that the underside of the bridge is displayed well, as well as the upper members.
    Not really possible with a single exposure. This was a 5 shot exposure.

    The bridge is in need of replacement, due to wear and tear over time.

    Used my new wireless remote on the D200 to fire the shutter, reduces any vibration due to hand movement........worked well.

    Photomatix used for processing HDR, then Apple Aperture for PP.

    Hope you enjoy, but welcome comments.

    The sharpness of that bridge is incredible and I like the water especially the jewel tones from the greens under the bridge spreading out to the blues... I also like the impression this photo gives of the bridge seemingly going on forever.

    I'm thinking I need to visit Austrailia sometime soon!!
  3. Come on down.....and thanks for your comment re the pic.

    Beautiful HDR work in my opinion. What were your camera settings if you don't mind? There is excellent depth to this photo. I love Photomatix!
  5. Well taken shot Ron. Nice to see what HDR can do.
  6. Thanks for your comments....it's a lot of fun doing it.

    Settings nothing really special as I recall. I always shoot in RAW mode and Aperture priority.

    This was a 5 shot combination and the camera was fired using a wireless remote to avoid movement.

    Can I be of any more help?
  7. Thanks greyflash..why not give it a go?
  8. Anyone else have some HDRs??

    Anyone else care to post some??

  10. I like the over all image, the composition, sharpe bridge and blue water. I would have less blue in the sky that is more toward blue-gray. Very nice photo.

    Here's one I took at a playground:

  14. Glad to see this thread resurected...

    ...because I'm continually trying to figure out HDR, and how to get the most out of it. It helps to see others efforts too. :smile:

    I think these have been posted on the cafe before, but what the heck. Here are three of mine, all shot with a D300 and Nikkor 24-70/2.8 lens:

    #1 Minneapolis from across the Mississippi River.

    #2 Minneapolis from the Stone Arch Bridge.

    #3 From the Mill Ruins Park in Minneapolis
