photoblog image Skyline HDR

Skyline HDR

Okay this is a rather wild and crazy shot I realize. I'm just posting it for fun more than its artistic merit. There's lots I hate in this one but much I find interesting too. This was an HDR image made from a number of shots that I took in heavily backlit conditions on a whim to show a friend who I was with what HDR is all about. Meanwhile, birds were wizzing around like crazy (hence the ghostlyness) and the ferry (left side of frame) was in motion.  Nevertheless, the sunbeams and clouds turned out nicely and it was just an interesting little experiment as well. Hope you find it interesting.

nice.
Looks great. HDr rock. Those bird ghosts spice things up a bit. The actually fit the empty foreground nicely. Nice one.
I don't see much to hate about this one. The ghostly birds are actually quite interesting. It may be worth emphasizing them a bit in pp. They add flavor to an otherwise very nice, but traditional shot.

love the ghostly phantom gulls Iain, dramatic tones as well. mal

I like the gulls too, they take a bit of finding but that's what adds interest. Maybe they could be a bit stronger.

I don't know a thing about HDR apart from what I've seen here on Shutterchance, it does seem to make for strong images, and this one is no exception. It's also got a remarkable depth
Iain Myrans: I think the multiple exposures caught the clouds moving which give it that sense of motion/depth you mention. Thanks for the comment ellie! smile
